Xavier R. Arzola, 20, was out on bond for a Manslaughter charge, when he was found with a handgun in the parking lot of Sunset Mall on November 21.
Arzola was detained for suspicious activity after the car’s alarm went off. It originally appeared to be a burglary in progress but the owners of the vehicle later told police that Arzola had permission to be in the vehicle.
There was another 20-year old man with Arzola during the incident who was detained as well, but later released.
Although Arzola had permission to be in the vehicle, the investigating officers discovered a semi-automatic handgun in Arzola’s seat.
He was arrested for Unlawful Carrying Handgun and taken to Tom Green County Jail.
