A search warrant was also served, with officers uncovering two airsoft guns - replica weapons used for team sports, matching the description of the firearm used during the initial DASH store attack.
t's unclear why Medrano was upset with the Kardashians, who visited Cuba last year and filmed scenes for their family reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The crazed female entered the boutique armed with a gun on Thursday. She pointed the weapon at 2 employees, yelled profanities and told the reality TV family to stay out of Cuba.
The woman knocked over store merchandise and fled the shop before cops arrived. She returned an hour later wielding a machete.
She was caught on local news footage screaming, "The Kardashians will be executed if they step on communist territory."
After threatening to stab a reporter outside the boutique she wedged her machete in the door and walked away.
The two incidents come almost a year after Kim Kardashian was robbed of jewelry and electronics at gunpoint in Paris, France.
