From the Facebook page of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station:

On Friday, the facts of the case against Newhall resident Robert Mount, age 52, were presented to the San Fernando District Attorney’s office.

The DA’s office formally charged Mount with 65 felony crimes, and he remains in custody with a bail set at more than $2 million.

On Wednesday, Dec. 6, deputies responded to the 25200 block of De Wolfe Road regarding a man with a gun and domestic disturbance call.

Through the course of their investigation, deputies discovered 144 firearms inside the residence.

SCV Station detectives are investigating the incident alongside investigators assigned to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

    I’m lost due to this call came in as a Husband and wife dispute. No one was injured and he came out peacefully. Some people say wow 144 guns he’s nuts , or was he a gun collector. Some people say why do you need more than one gun? Well people collect more than one classic car. This article really lacks a lot of key information which is why most of us are lost on this story.
    1. Why were the sheriffs called ?
    2. Who called the sheriffs?
    3. Why did he take 4 hours to come out?
    4. What kind of weapons were found?
    5. Were they legal to own/collect ?
    6. Does he have a criminal record ?
    7. Does he have a violent past?
    8. What does his wife say?

  3. Shane Weeks Shane Weeks says:

    52 counts of what?! Some of them must be for illegal weapons?

  4. Dan says:

    Yes, there is a lot missing from this article. I’m most interested in the nature of the 65 felony crimes he’s been charged with. Also, were any of the guns stolen or otherwise illegal? A bail of over $2 million is very unusual…why such a high amount? The article does say that it is from the Facebook page of the SCV Sheriff’s station. If they are going to put out an article for the public to read – which is part of their duties – they should put just a few more minutes into writing it so that the most obvious questions are answered.

    I would like to see SCVnews pick up its game since the SIGNAL has gotten so bad now under new ownership the past couple years.

    At least there is still an open community discussion on this site. We used to be able to use the SIGNAL to bring residents together to change our community. Examples are the “Bella the cat death” in the local shelter that spurred the positive change working with rescues so cats and dogs are not put down so easily. The digital billboard that the city council tried to shove down our throats we were able to get signatures going and stopped it. Now any comment that seems to start a conversation going is shut down. Not to mention that the view of the online version of the paper is no longer “user friendly”.
    Why the new owner of the paper that had won awards choose to ruin it is beyond me.
