Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna told reporters at a news conference that the suspect, Rodolfo Montoya, 37, was taken into custody on Tuesday at his home in nearby Huntington Beach, where police found an arsenal of weapons, including hundreds of rounds of ammunition, tactical gear, high-capacity ammo magazines and an assault rifle, which are outlawed in California.

The suspect was booked on suspicion of manufacturing and distributing assault weapons, possession of an assault weapon and making a criminal threat, and is being held in lieu of $500,000 bond, police said.

According to police, Montoya shared his grievances and his intention to perpetrate a mass shooting with a co-worker, who notified the hotel's general manager, who called authorities.
