A man accused of possessing several modified guns and methamphetamine failed to appear for his arraignment Monday in Riverside County Superior Court, prompting a judge to issue a warrant for his arrest.
Dionicio Felipe Nunez, 25, is charged with two counts of possession of a sawed-off rifle and one count each of possession of an assault rifle, possession of a controlled substance while armed and possession of a large-capacity magazine without a permit.
The defendant was slated to be arraigned Monday morning before Superior Court Judge David Gunn, but when his case was called at the Riverside Hall of Justice, Nunez was nowhere to be found.
Gunn immediately revoked Nunez’s $50,000 bond and signed the arrest warrant.
According to sheriff’s Sgt. Frank Lodes, anti-gang personnel served a drug-related warrant at Nunez’s leased property in the 11000 block of Big Dipper Drive, near Sunny Circle, in Jurupa Valley on June 14. While scouring the premises, they allegedly located a sawed-off shotgun, a short-barreled semi-automatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine attached, a modified pistol, body armor and the meth, the quantity of which was not disclosed.
Nunez was taken into custody that day without a struggle.
He has no documented prior felony convictions in Riverside County.
