During a patrol in Castaic on Monday, deputies arrested a man, alleging he was illegally in possession of firearms, ammunition and drug paraphernalia.
In the late morning Monday, deputies performed what they called a “traffic stop” of Thomas Duffy, 62, of Castaic, according to officials.
“(Duffy) was found to be driving on a suspended license, in possession of narcotics paraphernalia, ammunition and a loaded gun that was not registered to him,” a Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Facebook post from just after 8:10 p.m. said.
Deputies also reportedly learned Duffy had a “lengthy criminal record,” which prohibited him from being in possession of firearms or ammunition, the post stated.
Duffy is being held at the SCV Sheriff’s Station jail, his bail set at $191,250, according to the station’s arrest logs.
As of the publication of this article, SCV Sheriff’s Station deputies had not released any further information about the arrest, including the suspect’s name or what specific charges were being brought against him.
