CITRUS HEIGHTS (CBS13) – Police arrested a suspected white supremacist Wednesday morning when an assortment of firearms and ammunition was discovered inside his Citrus Heights home.
Around 9 a.m. detectives from the Sheriff’s IMPACT Division went to 49-year-old David Laux’s home in the 8300 block of Fair Way to serve a search warrant.
Laux was seen driving away from the residence and was detained without incident.
Inside the home, 13 firearms, including several assault rifles and over 20,000 rounds of ammunition, were discovered.
