WATSONVILLE A felon who was allegedly in possession of a loaded handgun was arrested by the Santa Cruz County Gang Task Force Wednesday.

Sgt. Stefan Fish, GTF supervisor, said Manuel Agustin Cabazuela, 32, was initially stopped by GTF members at Ms. Donuts, 301 East Lake Ave. at 5 p.m. As police contacted two suspected gang members in a vehicle in the parking lot they recognized one of the subjects as Cabazuela. Police knew he was on probation after a June 2012 arrest and conviction for possession of a loaded stolen firearm by a felon, participation in a gang and assault with a deadly weapon.

As GTF officers attempted to conduct a compliance search of Cabazuela, pursuant to his probation terms, he resisted and was subsequently wrestled to the ground, Fish said. While wrestling with officers Cabazuela threw a loaded handgun onto the ground.

He was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm by a felon, gang participation, resisting arrest, probation violation and carrying a concealed weapon.

The other male was released.
