  • Wtf more kids with guns in Ferndale wow didn’t see that coming . All that firepower for a pound . How stupid and very alarming.Ferndale is starting to get polluted . With the meth plague. Sorry to say I thought that Ferndale would be spared a lil longer.so young sad for the parents . I guess .

    • No Meth meantioned, just marijuana.

    • them some big guns

      Gangs bring guns and not ones for hunting anything besides their enemies. And am not blaming just Mexi cartels, they try to hide out, but gang members dont. There are many “gangs” in our county including all white ones who are involved in illegal gun peddling. Maybe instead of that armored vehicle for the cops the measure Z money could pay to bring up some cops who have knowledge and experience how to deal with gangs.

      When I lived in LA in the late 80’s the cops offered a pair of concert tickets for every gun you turned in, no questions asked. They got thousands of guns as a result.

  • The old west is now the new west!

    What? Me worry?

  • Felon/ addict/ mental patient with assault rifles?! Wow!

    • The first guy got two of those charges, keeping me to guess what of the three he could be? So maybe not a mental patient?

      Also the folding collapsing rear stock, forward hand hold, and flash hider will see them with assault weapons charges. Oddly the clips look to be only 10 round?

  • Good job Ferndale PD keeping our town safe !!
