Deputies have arrested two people accused of possessing thousands of rounds of ammunition and more than 50 guns, including assault rifles, authorities reported Friday.

They were serving a warrant in Potrero on Thursday, and discovering the cache of weapons, arrested Richard Dale Fox, 50, an ex-con, and Christina Lee Griffin, 41, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The court-ordered search warrant, issued in the 25000 block of Potrero Valley Road, stemmed from an assault with a deadly weapon that occurred several months ago, Lt. Jeff Ford said.

The authorities booked Fox into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of assault and being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

Griffin was admitted to Las Colinas women’s jail in Santee on a charge of furnishing firearms to a prohibited person, Ford said.
