VICTORVILLE — Sheriff’s deputies arrested a felon here Wednesday who officials say was found with a semi-automatic handgun, cannabis and a large amount of cash.

David Deon Porter, of Victorville, who had previously been released on bail for two other charges, was taken in to custody at his home in the 14300 block of Borego Road after deputies served a search warrant for unspecified reasons, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department statement.

The Victorville Police Department’s Gang Enforcement Division led the investigation and arrested the 24-year-old Porter shortly after, the Thursday statement said.

In the home, deputies discovered a semi-automatic handgun that was reported stolen in Kingman, Arizona; a high capacity magazine for the gun; marijuana and marijuana-related paraphernalia; and a large amount of cash, the statement said.

Porter was booked at the High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto for being a felon in possession of a firearm, receiving stolen property and committing a crime while out of custody on bail, according to the statement.

Porter again posted bail and was released from custody shortly before 9:30 p.m. the same day, booking records show. No court dates are scheduled.
