LOS ANGELES, CA. (THECOUNT) — Girard Saenz has been identified as the man taken into custody after law enforcement seized over 1,000 guns from a Bel-Air mansion.
Saenz, 57, identified in court records as the “longtime companion of Los Angeles real estate mogul Cynthia Beck,” was arrested Wednesday after authorities seized more than 1,000 guns from a home in Holmby Hills, reports Bakersfield.
The Bel-Air mansion was described by authorities as a hoarder’s paradise with guns strewn throughout the house. Court records show the property is owned by Cynthia Beck, who has three daughters with J. Paul Getty’s son Gordon Getty. Beck bought the property in January 2001, but it remains unclear what, if any, connection she has to Wednesday’s events. Beck could not be reached for comment.
Saenz was arrested on suspicion of unlawful transportation and of giving, lending or selling an assault weapon. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles Police Department and court records.
