SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KION and CBS13) A wanted Santa Cruz County felon was arrested after an hours-long standoff in South Lake Tahoe Wednesday evening, according to the CBS affiliate in Sacramento.

CBS13 reports that 55-year-old Scott Nevin was out on bail on 50 felony charges and had numerous warrants for his arrest. Some of the charges included domestic violence and intimidating witnesses.

Police told CBS13 that the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant on Nevin's home. During the search, sheriff's deputies found 43 weapons and tactical vests with Washoe County Sheriff’s Office patches on them. Washoe County is located in Nevada next to South Lake Tahoe.
