The discovery was made after the man – Jacob Baird, 41 – was arrested while allegedly carrying a loaded, concealed handgun and in possession of law enforcement identification that was not his.

Authorities were initially called about 4 p.m. Friday with a report of a suspicious person possibly carrying a gun in the 700 block of East Camarillo Springs Road, the Camarillo Police Department said in a news release.
