Through surveillance, authorities observed Medina leaving his home in a Chevrolet Silverado on Feb. 13. They pulled him over and arrested him after developing probable cause that he was in illegal possession of a firearm due to prior felony assault conviction that prohibits him from owning one.

Members of the DEA Task Force, LEAD Task Force and the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at his home after the arrest.
