Police found a rocket launcher, TNT and dozens of weapons in a motorcyclist’s South Los Angeles home over the weekend after someone spotted him riding around town with a rifle.

On Saturday morning, a bystander flagged down officers after seeing the man carrying a rifle as he drove his motorcycle near South Figueroa Street and West Gage Avenue, LAPD Officer Drake Madison said. Police found the man leaving a gas station not far from where he was first seen.
