EAST LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Officials said a 24-year-old mother of three and an alleged gang member were arrested when a search of their East Los Angeles home yielded drugs and guns.

Ivonne Salazar, was arrested Wednesday after detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department gang unit searched her home and found amounts of methamphetimine, cocaine and heroin, along with three loaded handguns, sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies said when asked, Salazar admitted to having the illegal narcotics for sale and the firearms for protection during business transactions.

Salazar’s three daughters, 4, 7 and 8 years old, were taken into protective custody.

    all of you stupid morons whom im surprised that you even own a computer should stop spreading so much hate. Does this “illegal” talk really make you animals feel better?? The drug issue is an every race problem. Regardless the race or illegal status Three children of the human race are left without a mother and are now property of the awful gov. children custody agencies. stupid parents come in every race. lets not forget about the stupid white couple who were running a meth lab in their babies room and their poor babies crib caught fire and well… the rest is just pure tragedy. People need to stop, breath,think before sending out negative energy out to the world.

      Thank you for taking this cancer off the streets and removing these children from such DEPLORABLE conditions. Unfortunately, they will have to be bounced around by our PITIFUL child custody agencies. And let’s all hope that they won’t be re-united with their mother, like too many child custody agencies do.
