Posted: Monday, Jul 28th, 2014

WATSONVILLE A Salinas man was arrested Saturday for reportedly possessing a shotgun that had been illegally altered in the parking lot of Factory 2-U.

Watsonville Police officers were dispatched to a report of a subject with a gun at 3:30 p.m. at 1404 Freedom Blvd. As officers responded multiple callers made similar reports. Witnesses described a subject wearing a striped shirt in or near a silver Lexus sedan in front of Factory 2-U, said Sgt. Mike Ridgway.

Officers happened to be close by and arrived within a minute. Witnesses pointed out the suspect vehicle and the driver was detained at gunpoint. Once the scene was safe officers located a pistol-grip shotgun in the trunk of the Lexus.
