A Camarillo man was arrested after Ventura County sheriff's deputies said they found an assault weapon in his home, along with ammunition, a small quantity of heroin and syringes.
Deputies said Jacob Carl Manuel, 23, is on probation for burglary with search terms.
They searched his home along the 600 block of North Las Posas Road on Thursday afternoon.
Deputies said they found multiple boxes of ammunition and several firearms, including an AK-47 assault rifle and an unregistered Ruger mini-14 rifle.
Manuel was not at home at the time. Deputies suspect he was alerted to their presence and was hiding.
Manuel was found in his vehicle a short distance away, deputies said.
He was arrested on suspicion of unlawful firearm activity, possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines, possession of a controlled substance and unauthorized possession of a hypodermic needle. In addition, Manuel was accused of cruelty to an animal after deputies said they found a pit bull terrier locked in a crate inside a closed closet at the home.
Manuel was taken to the Ventura County Jail, where he was being held on bail of $55,000, authorities said.
