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.

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.
