PORTERVILLE, Calif. -
Two previously convicted felons were arrested after a noise complaint led to a search on Wednesday night.
On Feb. 6, at about 10 p.m., officers went to an apartment complex on West Morton Avenue to investigate a noise complaint.
When the first officer arrived, she said she contacted 27-year-old Julian Silvas who was sitting inside a vehicle with a concealed weapon, blocking the driveway.
Officials said Silvas was then arrested.
According to authorities, a search later revealed Silvas had several syringes and methamphetamine; and a warrant check revealed he had a parole violation warrant.
Moments later, the officer said she was contacted by a second man, identified as 36-year-old Manual Camacho, who stated the vehicle belonged to him.
While speaking with Camacho, the officer said they saw a partially concealed shotgun in the vehicle.
Officials said Camacho was also arrested and the shotgun was seized, noting the barrel had been sawed-off.
Authorities said a records check also revealed both suspects were previously convicted felons.
According to officials, Silvas and Camacho were booked into the Tulare County Jail.
