A Lake Elsinore man who was allegedly found Thursday with guns, ammunition and illegal drugs, has been arrested.
Robert Lee Hansen, 61, was arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of illegal narcotics while armed with a firearm, and being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to a report from Sgt. David Cardoza of the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station.
Hansen’s arrest around 4:45 p.m. came as a deputy on patrol in a marked unit was driving through the area of Temescal Canyon and Lake Street. The deputy spotted a travel trailer parked at a property in the 14500 block of Temescal Canyon, according to Cardoza’s report.
“There have been previous complaints to Riverside County Code Enforcement about illegal activity, narcotic activity, and illegal dumping in the area,” the report stated.
The deputy questioned the travel trailer driver, which turned out to be Hansen.
“During the course of the contact, the driver … exhibited the symptoms of narcotic use. The driver was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, two firearms, and live ammunition during a consent search of his travel trailer,” Cardoza’s report continued.
Jail records show Hansen remains in custody at Southwest Detention Center in lieu of $25,000. He is due to appear in court Sept. 24.
According to jail records, at least one of the firearms in Hansen’s possession was loaded. Based on jail records, it appears Hansen’s weapons were registered to him.
