A loaded sawed-off shotgun was seized after a deputy investigated a suspicious vehicle parked near a vacant residence, according to sheriff's officials.

Miguel Orozco, 47, was inside the vehicle parked in the 33000 block of Stockdale Highway, and the deputy learned he had a warrant out for his arrest, sheriff's officials said. Orozco was taken into custody.

A search of him and the vehicle turned up the shotgun, ammunition and drug paraphernalia, according to sheriff's officials.

What? How could Orozco have a sawed off shotgun in his possession? That type of weapon is against the law, the gun laws in California prevent people like Orozco from having illegal or legal weapons. Oh, that's right those restrictive gun laws only affect law abiding citizens not the thugs, gang bangers and criminals.
