Man who had multiple firearms at his Point Loma apartment sentenced to probation, work service

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who kept a cache of weapons at his Point Loma apartment -- including an AK-47 assault rifle and 5,000 rounds of ammunition -- was sentenced Tuesday to probation and 30 days of public service work.

Superior Court Judge Eugenia Eyherabide gave Fred Seeber credit for 13 days in custody and told the defendant the remainder of his 90-day jail term would be suspended as long as he successfully completes three years on probation.

The judge also told the defendant that he was no longer allowed to possess firearms.

Seeber, 59, pleaded guilty in April to three felony counts, including possession of a deadly weapon and possession of a destructive device.

He, was arrested last Nov. 9 in connection with the discovery of 18 rifles, a submachine gun, four explosive devices, 14 handguns and the ammunition.

According to a search warrant affidavit, the weapons were found after Harbor police Sgt. Mike Rich went to Seeber's home last July to investigate allegations that the defendant's roommate had stolen a cell phone from her ex-boyfriend.

Officers armed with a search warrant stormed Seeber's home and seized the weapons and ammunition. None of the guns were registered, and police determined that Seeber was an ex-felon with a 1977 conviction for robbery.

Seeber -- whose attorney says the conviction was removed from the defendant's record in 2010 -- said the firearms were part of a collection that he inherited from his family.
