BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Two people who deputies say fired shots in East Bakersfield that struck vehicles and homes have been arrested on multiple weapons and drug offenses.

Felix Abel Guterriez, 34, and Elizabeth Cardenas, 30, both of Bakersfield, were arrested Tuesday after deputies served a search warrant in the 3000 block of Fillmore Avenue, according to sheriff’s officials.

The two are suspects in a shooting that took place April 28 in the area of Oregon Street and West Drive, officials said. No injuries were reported.

The suspect vehicle was identified and located at the Fillmore Avenue residence, deputies said.

Deputies found a self-assembled “ghost” handgun and numerous rounds of ammunition in the residence consistent with rounds located at the scene of the shooting, according to the sheriff’s office. They also found 20 pounds of methamphetamine, a half pound of heroin and about 1,000 fentanyl pills.
