Girard Saenz Involved In 2017 Malibu Incident ‘Held Cynthia Beck Housekeepers At Gunpoint’

LOS ANGELES, CA. (THECOUNT) — Girard Saenz, the man arrested after police seized over 1,000 guns from a Bel-Air mansion, was allegedly involved in a 2017 incident involving a firearm.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ, Saenz, 57, held at gunpoint a team of house cleaners back in 2017 after discovering them at a Malibu property owned by his longtime companion, Cynthia Beck.

Beck is the real estate mogul who also owns the Holmby Hills mansion where authorities arrested Saenz Wednesday and seized more than 1,000 firearms.

Saenz happened to be driving by the property when he noticed the team of people removing items from the house. Cops say that’s when he held them at gunpoint to investigate. Cops eventually intervened and took everyone back to the station to sort it out, according to TMZ.

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.

Schroder bailed out after that arrest. He is currently in custody for this morning’s, and we’re told his bail this time is set at $50,000.

In 2016, Schroder filed for divorce from fellow actor, Andrea Schroder, after nearly 24 years of marriage, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
