SAN DIEGO (October 28, 2012)--A 20-year-old San Diego State student faces charges after officers discovered a cache of firearms in the trunk of his car including a sniper rifle.
KFMB-TV reports David Robert Moore III initially attracted the attention of undercover officers Friday night while they were conducting a sting targeting minors who were trying to buy alcohol at a shopping center.
When Moore opened the trunk of his white Honda Civic, two officers noticed what appeared to be military-grade weapons inside.
They found nine guns, including a modified sniper rifle, a pistol and a rifle.
A military knife was also discovered.
Moore was given a field sobriety test and arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
Police say he could also face charges for the weapons.
