Arraignment is set for the 30 year old Elk Grove man arrested last weekend for possession of weapons, body armor and drugs. Galt police on Saturday arrested Thomas James Nicholson of Elk Grove after noticing a “suspicious vehicle” shortly after midnight near Twin Cities Road and West Stockton Boulevard. After searching the vehicle, officers say they found several cans of pepper spray, as well as prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia. Police also say they found Nicholson wearing a full security uniform.

It is unclear whether he is actually employed as a security guard. Nicholson is a felon and parolee, convicted on firearm related charges. He is currently barred from owning firearms or body armor. With bail set at $590,000, he is scheduled to be arraigned today.
