SCRAPPERS ARRESTED ON BASE WITH UNEXPLODED ORDINANCE

Two people were arrested Wednesday on the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center after they were found with scrap metals, weapons, and drugs. According to Sheriff’s Sergeant Robert Warrick, the base’s military police came across Strader Surratt, 29, and Ashley Dedrick, 22, both of North Carolina, on the base and noticed a portion of a helicopter rotor blade in the back seat of his vehicle. Surratt, who is formerly of Victorville, told the MPs that he had more scrap metal in his trunk. While searching his trunk, the military police found unexploded 50-caliber incendiary rounds, 30-caliber tracer rounds, 20-mm practice rounds, and a high-explosive 20-mm round, all of which are illegal for civilians to own in California. The Sheriff’s Department’s Bomb and Arson Squad was called in to confiscate and transport the illegal ammunition. After an investigation, Strader Surratt was arrested on suspicion of possession of a destructive device, burglary, and two counts of possession of stolen property. He was booked at the West Valley Detention Center with his total bail set at $175,000. Ashley Dedrick was cited for trespassing and released.
