A deputy in the Delano area was patrolling around Schuster and Driver roads when he spotted a vehicle parked in an orchard.

That discovery led to others, namely a handgun and ammunition inside the car, deputies said. The car's occupant, 20-year-old Gonzalo Tejada, was taken into custody.

A search of Tejada's residence turned up marijuana, suspected methamphetamine and a loaded handgun, deputies said.
