The Rancho Cucamonga Police Department (RCPD) arrested Long Beach resident and convicted felon Gregory Calhoun early Thursday morning on felony charges regarding illegal possession of a firearm and burglary tools.
According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (SBSD), an officer from the RCPD located a suspicious vehicle parked near an intersection in the city. As he approached the car and spoke to the four occupants of the vehicle, he noticed a 5-foot pry-bar behind the rear seat, prompting an investigation.
Deputies located additional pry-bars, saws and electric grinders, gloves and numbers of several credit cards, handwritten on a piece of paper. They then located a handgun, two 33 round high capacity magazines and two 15 round magazines. It was determined all the tools belonged to the driver, 30-year-old Calhoun, who had a prior felony conviction and was prohibited from legally possessing a firearm.
Police arrested Calhoun; he was booked at West Valley Detention Center, with bail set at $50,000.
