Inside the park’s restroom, the deputies found a shoebox with a loaded .22 caliber revolver, a .380 semi-automatic pistol, and a glasses case the held 91 rounds of .22 ammunition and two small bags of cocaine. One of the guns was reported stolen from Oxnard, said Hoover in the press release. Authorities also found a folding knife in the weeds near the picnic table.
