Probation search yields big take of unique weapons

first_imgAuthorities seized 14 AK-47 magazines, and dozens of rifle bullets. Duriez was also found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia and a small quantity of methamphetamine. Duriez will be charged with violating terms of his probation, Engel said, noting a prior misdemeanor domestic-violence conviction that included a search clause that does not permit him to possess firearms. “He’s not a dangerous man, but it’s significant because of the amount of arms and ammunition and the uniqueness of the weapons,” Engel said. gideon.rubin@dailynews.com LAKE LOS ANGELES – A multiagency probation search this week resulted in the arrest of a Lake Los Angeles man on weapons-possession charges, significant because of the quantity and “uniqueness” of the artillery, authorities said. Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms joined county probation officers and sheriff’s deputies in the search of James Duriez’s home in the 4100 block of 168th Street East at approximately 8 a.m. Wednesday. The search resulted in the seizure of several collector’s firearms including a vintage handgun, an Egyptian single-action rifle, a 12-gauge pump shotgun and an old fully automatic 9 mm machine gun, sheriff’s Deputy Richard Engel said. Authorities seized what appeared to be a miniature homemade cannon, an item Engel described as a “noisemaker,” that Duriez said he fired on holidays such as New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July, Engel said.
