A suspect was arrested after allegedly fleeing from deputies and being caught carrying a ghost gun, authorities mentioned Thursday.

Clinton Bailey, 51, allegedly ran off when members of the Vista Sheriff’s Station’s Gang Enforcement Workforce approached him within the 1200 block of North Citrus Avenue shortly earlier than 9 p.m. Wednesday, based on the San Diego County Sheriff’s Division.

Deputies chased down Bailey, the topic of 5 felony arrest warrants, and took him into custody, discovering him in possession of a pistol and a loaded journal, Sgt. Seung Park mentioned.

“In contrast to authorized firearms, ghost weapons aren’t marked with serial numbers,” the sergeant famous. “There is no such thing as a approach to monitor their origins or their homeowners, making it more durable for regulation enforcement to research or clear up a criminal offense.”
