A local man was recently arrested after an assortment of firearms and ammunition was discovered inside his home, according to a press release issued by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

David Laux

David Laux, 49, was reportedly taken into custody on Wednesday, December 5, and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail for multiple weapons-related charges. He is being held on $110,000 bail.

At approximately 9:00 am on December 5, detectives from the Sheriff’s IMPACT Division went to a home in the 8300 block of Fair Way in Citrus Heights to serve a search warrant. The suspect, Laux, was reportedly observed driving away from the residence, and was detained without incident, pursuant to service of the warrant.

Inside the residence, detectives recovered a total of 13 firearms, including several assault rifles, and over 20,000 rounds of ammunition.

Information gathered by detectives suggested Laux is affiliated with an extremist organization that subscribes to an ideology consistent with white supremacist beliefs. According to the Sheriff’s Department, it is believed there is a likelihood that the weapons may have been supplied to other members of this group, or possibly being sold for profit.

Did Laux's Citrus Heights neighbors know he was a white supremacist with a large weapons cache?

The IMPACT Division, whose primary mission is to combat youth and gang-related violence throughout the Sacramento region and its outlying areas, is reportedly composed of personnel from multiple local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. They include the Sheriff’s Department, Rancho Cordova Police Department, Citrus Heights Police Department, Elk Grove Police Department, Galt Police Department, California Highway Patrol, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (Special Services Unit), Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and Immigrations & Customs Enforcement.
