Exactly what prompted the traffic stop was not disclosed, but the driver was identified as 32-year-old Rocklin resident Vincent Brown.
For some reason, Brown allegedly told deputies that he was a German Foreign Service Agent. Deputies later found a gold badge with the words “Private Security” printed on it, but nothing else that proved he was a foreign agent.READ MORE: Rio Linda Sandwich Shop Owner Recovering From Stabbing
Instead, deputies say they found several weapons in his car – including a loaded handgun, a revolver, and an illegal unregistered AR-15 pistol “ghost gun.” The AR-15 had two high-capacity magazines loaded with armor-piercing rounds, deputies say.
Another ghost gun, a handgun with some modifications that deputies say made it into an assault weapon, was among the other items found in Brown’s car. Further, the car had a license plate belonging to someone else’s vehicle.MORE NEWS: Sacramento Animal Care Services Pushes For More Help For Homeless Pets
