A twenty-year-old San Angelo man out on bond for a Manslaughter charge was caught with a handgun yesterday afternoon in the Sunset Mall Parking lot, 4001 Sunset Drive. 

Xavior R. Arzola, 20, was detained for suspicious activity surrounding a vehicle’s car alarm that was going off in the parking lot in what appeared to be a vehicle burglary in progress.  Another subject, a twenty-year-old San Angelo man, was also detained but later released. 

During the investigation, the vehicle’s owners eventually exited the mall and advised Police that Arzola and the other man had consent to be in the vehicle; however, Police located a semi-automatic handgun where Arzola had been seated.     

Arzola was charged with Unlawful Carrying Weapon and was transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.
