(SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer today announced an investigation by agents with his Firearms Division resulted in the seizure of a record number of assault weapons from an Orange County firearms importer who was not licensed to sell guns in California.

Andy Sun, 48, was indicted Monday by the Orange County Grand Jury on 55 felony counts of possession and sale of illegal assault weapons. He was arrested by California Department of Justice (DOJ) Firearms agents Tuesday.

In March, agents with the DOJ Firearms Division executed a search warrant at Sun's business, Defense Technologies Inc., 22600 Lambert Street in Lake Forest. The search warrant also included Sun's residence at 49 Blue Horizon in Laguna Niguel.

The search warrant was based on information that Sun possessed a large number of assault shotguns, which he was advertising for sale on the Internet, along with high capacity magazines. Sun, a licensed federal firearms dealer, is not certified as a California Firearms Dealer, nor does he have the permits required to sell assault weapons or high capacity magazines.

Seized from the business and residence were a total of two machines guns, 26 assault rifles, one assault pistol, 482 assault shotguns, 388 rifles, 10 shotguns, 527 pistols, and 23,572 high capacity magazines. Also seized were two grenade launchers

. The prosecution will be handled by the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
