Yesterday it was announced that Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative has once again helped law enforcement agents coordinate efforts in the past week to bring charges against three Sacramento men with illegal possession of firearms.

Jose Manuel Hernandez, 30, was charged with possessing a firearm after previously being convicted of a felony, and in addition with possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine, cultivating marijuana, and possessing with intent to distribute marijuana. Michael Rojas Jr., 24, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. And Gabriel Reyes Hernandez, 27, was charged with being a felon in possession of a .40 caliber Glock 23 pistol with an obliterated serial number.

If convicted on the firearm offenses, each defendant faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. These cases are the product of investigations by the Sacramento Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant United States Attorneys Michael McCoy and Justin Lee are prosecuting the cases.
