FRESNO, Calif. – A gang member whose face is practically covered completely with tattoos has been jailed on firearm and drug charges.

Khamprasong Thammavong, 33, was arrested Monday in Fresno, Calif. after police searched his apartment following a traffic stop.

Police found a semiautomatic rifle and handgun inside the apartment, along with 28 marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia.

The Huffington Post reports that police were able to search Thammavong's home without a search warrant because he was currently on probation.

The website adds that Thammavong is a member of the Laos Blood gang.
