COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a man they say stockpiled bomb-making material and guns in a Costa Mesa business park where he lived.

The Orange County Register says an anonymous tip led them Monday to a unit in the commercial park where they discovered gun powder, fuse material and other items that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.

Police say they also found 34 firearms, including a shotgun, handguns and rifles. Some of the weapons appeared to be collector’s items.

Sixty-six-year-old Baylor Maggenti was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing explosive making materials. He remains jailed Wednesday. A telephone number for him in Costa Mesa has been disconnected.
