DOJ Special Agents Seize 40 Firearms From Chula Vista Home


CHULA VISTA -  On August 3, 2016, California Department of Justice (DOJ) special agents and Chula Vista police seized more than 40 firearms from a Chula Vista resident who is forbidden by law from owning or possessing firearms.  The person in possession of the weapons is in DOJ's  Armed and Prohibited Persons System (APPS) database and was arrested for a felony violation.

"DOJ special agents on the Bureau of Firearms APPS team are checking on people who should, by law, not be in possession of a firearm and they are removing any firearms found in the residence," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  "This person had more than 40 firearms.   Seizing those weapons and seizing the weapons from anyone in the APPS database goes a long way in providing safety and security to Californians."

People in the APPS database may be prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm because they are  felons, individuals with history of violence (domestic violence/restraining order) or severe mental illness, or a wanted person.
