A pot deal gone bad may have led San Leandro Police to arrest a 25-year-old Oakland man for possession of a loaded gun and marijuana for sale Friday night.
Police said the arrest occurred at 15251 Hesperian Boulevard at about 7:45 pm.
According to police, a caller phoned 911 Friday night to report seeing two men arguing in the parking lot.
The caller told police that during the argument the suspect identified as Munsar Mused, 25, of Oakland, went into the trunk of his car and allegedly got a handgun which he tucked into the waistband of his pants.
Officers say that when they arrived at the scene they saw Mused sitting in a burgundy Cadillac, holding a black, semi-automatic handgun. They ordered him to put down the gun. He did so and was arrested without further incident.
A loaded .40 caliber Glock semi-automatic was found inside the car, along with two plastic baggies each containing about an ounce of marijuana, police said.
Mused was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm with intent to commit a felony, possession of a loaded firearm in public and possession of marijuana for sale.
“This was an extremely dangerous call that could have been tragic for everybody involved including the officers," Police Department spokesman Lt. Jeff Tudor said in a release.
