The Ponca City Police Department Tactical Team assisted the Special Projects Unit in a search warrant early this morning at a residence in the 1200 block of South Ninth Street.

A city park sits directly behind the home and that fact heightens the charges against all seven of those arrested, police spokeswoman Sherry Bowers said.

Just after 4:30 a.m., officers entered the home, Bowers said. A search of the residence yielded guns and illegal drugs.

Randy R Starnes, 62, was arrested on complaints of possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamines, being a felon in possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of marijuana.

Charles R Linder, 59, was arrested on complaints of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia.
