Authorities seized more than a thousand guns from the home after getting an anonymous tip regarding illegal firearms sales in a posh area near the Playboy Mansion and served a search warrant around 4 a.m. Wednesday at the property on the border of the Bel Air and Holmby Hills neighborhoods.
Girard Damien Saenz, 57, suspected of illegal manufacture, distribution or sale of assault weapons in the case, was arrested but released on Thursday morning after paying 50,000 USA dollars in bail, according to the jail records.
The arsenal was found in a $7 million home owned by Cynthia Beck who had a long affair, and three children, with Gordon Getty. Authorities will trace all the weapons, she said.
"It's kind of astounding", Los Angeles police lieutenant Chris Ramirez told reporters outside the house in Bel Air. "It is just beyond comprehension that somebody can have so many weapons in this type of neighborhood".
It's also unknown if Beck has any involvement in the weapons or the search warrant, though it's worth noting that she owns a few properties with Saenz.
The ATF said in a statement that its agents searched the Holmby Hills home after discovering an individual was illegally selling firearms outside the scope of the federal licence the person possesses.
Saenz, 57, who has not yet been formally charged, was released yesterday morning on US$50,000 (RM207,739) bail.

Aaron Rodgers reportedly making ‘Game of Thrones’ cameo on May 12
The eighth season's fifth episode is anticipated to be one of the most thrilling yet, and there will be very special cameo in the episode.
Saenz has been a licensed general building contractor since 1994 and operates a business in San Diego called Gerry Saenz and Associates, according to public records. The property is located at 111 North Beverly Glen Boulevard.
Saenz was arrested in Malibu at a home on suspicion of brandishing a firearm in 2017, but the matter was not considered for charges after the alleged victims told deputies they did not want to pursue it, a sheriff's spokesman told the Times.
Police didn't release any more information about the arrest, but the law enforcement official said they have not found any evidence linking Saenz to terrorism.
Investigators recovered more than 1,000 guns, as well as manufacturing equipment and tools, Colbrun said, adding that authorities "have no reason to believe the public is in any danger".
Chuck Michel, a well-known gun rights attorney, said that having 1,000 guns isn't that unusual for a federal firearms dealer.
"The arrest here seems to be for some illegal assault weapons", Cooley said.
