The CASE (Contra Costa County Anti-Violence Support Effort) Team last month launched an investigation into a person who was found with a loaded unregistered handgun. On Friday, September 14, 2018, the CASE Team carried out a search warrant on the person’s home on Lake Park Drive in Oakley.
During the search of his home, the CASE Team seized the following weapons:
- 9mm Poly 80 Glock-style machine gun pistol,
- .223 AR-15-style assault pistol
- 7.62 AR-10-style rifle
- .357 semi-auto pistol
- .45 semi-auto pistol.
In addition, parts for Poly 80 Glock-style pistols (including two milled pistol frames), firearm manufacturing equipment, and several thousand rounds of ammunition were confiscated.
The CASE Team arrested 46-year-old Michael Wunder of Oakley. Wunder was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on the following charges: felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a machine gun, possession of an assault weapon, manufacturing an assault weapon, and felon in possession of ammunition.
Wunder is being held in lieu of $600,000 bail.
The CASE Team is a joint effort by the Office of the Sheriff, California Department of Justice, California Highway Patrol, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Pittsburg Police Department, Walnut Creek Police Department, and Probation Officers from the Contra Costa County Probation Department. CASE was created in November 2011 as a collaborative effort to reduce violent crimes in Contra Costa, especially those related to illegal firearms.
