A 28-year-old man is in jail after allegedly being found with guns and drugs at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton on Wednesday. Hedayatullah Bayanzay, of Stockton, is in San Joaquin County Jail after being arrested by Delta College Campus Police shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities were alerted to Bayanzay when they received a call about a man in a "No parking" zone in front of the childcare center blaring his music, said Sgt. Bob Di Piero of the Delta College Campus Police.

"We made contact with him and drug paraphernalia was in plain sight," Di Piero said. "That led to a search in which we found a loaded firearm on his person and a second firearm in the vehicle."

Bayanzay complied with the search and did not resist officers, Di Piero said. He is not a student of the college and was likely there to pick someone else up, he said. Heroin, prescription medications and two handguns were among the items uncovered during the search, police said.

Although officers routinely come across students who bring knives or Airsoft guns to campus, Di Piero said it had been the first time in recent memory in which the college police force recovered a handgun on campus.

Bayanzay was arrested for multiple felonies, including possession of a firearm on school grounds, possession of a loaded firearm on school grounds and being a felon or addict in possession of a firearm. He was also arrested on multiple drug-related misdemeanors, according to booking records for the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department. He is being held on a $556,000 bond.

    Wow, law enforcement apprehended this guy without wannabe citizens cops telling them how to do it? Simply amazing. Wait....Just what ethnicity is this guy? Racist, profiling cops are at it again.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
