Templeton man found with loaded guns at Jack in the Box

Kyle Hogue

Santa Barbara County sheriff deputies arrested a 32-year-old Templeton man found with loaded guns and a meth pipe at the Jack in the Box parking lot in Orcutt on Friday night.

Shortly after 10 p.m., deputies noticed Kyle Kenneth Hogue appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance. When deputies searched Hogue, they located a glass smoking methamphetamine pipe in his jacket.

Inside his backpack, deputies found a loaded 9 mm Rock Island Armory pistol without a serial number, a loaded sawed-off Springfield Model 67 12-gauge shotgun also without a serial number, a PR-24 Baton, 100 rounds of 9 mm ammunition and six rounds of 12-gauge ammunition.

Officers booked Hogue into the Santa Barbara County Jail on charges of carrying a concealed firearm, manufacturing a short barrel gun, manufacturing a lead cane, possession of unlawful paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Earlier this year, on Jan. 7, Atascadero police arrested Hogue for possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license and no proof of insurance.
