Authorities arrest Pasco gang member with violent history

Gang Team detectives with the Benton County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on multiple felony charges including possession of narcotics, firearms and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities located Pasco gang member Ramon Aguilar, 37, on Monday at 1210 W. 30th Ave. in Kennewick, where gang members are known to frequent. He was wanted on an arrest warrant for narcotics delivery. Deputies also heard reports that he may have been involved with a burglary and an assault at that very same location, according to a news release.

Aguilar is a convicted felon with a history of violent offenses. With that in mind, Tri-Cities SWAT was dispatched to his residents at 401 W. Columbia St. in Pasco to serve a search warrant even though the suspect had already been arrested.

With the help of Kennewick and Pasco Police, authorities found a narcotics, a stolen vehicle, stolen firearms and numerous stolen tools at the residence.

Aguilar has been booked into Franklin County Jail.
