Ventura police arrested a man who allegedly passed out in a fast-food restaurant’s drive-thru with a dog, handgun and meth inside his car, authorities said Tuesday.
Officers arrived at the Jack in the Box in the 2300 block of Thompson Boulevard just before midnight Monday after receiving a call about a person passed out behind the wheel in the drive-thru.
They found the man, later identified as 30-year-old Robert Gray of Ventura, still passed out inside the vehicle, where there was a “vicious” dog, Ventura police said.
Animal Control responded to the scene and took the dog. Police subsequently searched the vehicle and reported finding a concealed handgun, meth and narcotics paraphernalia, according to authorities.
Gray was arrested on suspicion of possessing meth, drug paraphernalia and a concealed weapon, police said.
He was booked at the Ventura County Main Jail on $50,000 bail, inmate records showed. He was scheduled to appear in court on July 18.
