Anaheim police served a search warrant Monday at the 500 block of South Clementine Street, according to an Anaheim Police Department press release.

SWAT officers and Orange County Sheriff Department's bomb squad investigators, who responded after a tip was made regarding a resident in possession of firearms and explosives, took part in the search.

No explosives were found at the location.

Before arriving at the residence, however, police pulled over and arrested 59-year-old Anaheim resident Mark Steven Czikalla for possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle. Czikalla is being held on $20,000 bail at the Anaheim Detention Facility, according to the release.

This is at least the second time a SWAT team responded to the area for serving a search warrant within a month. More than two weeks ago, Anaheim police responded to the 400 block of South Clementine to free a kidnapped man from a drug deal, arresting two suspects, the Orange County Register reported.
