A Templeton man was arrested Friday night at an Orcutt Jack in the Box restaurant after police said they found a methamphetamine pipe in his jacket and weapons including a sawed-off shotgun in his backpack, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 10:15 p.m., deputies went to the parking lot of the Jack in the Box in the 5000 block of Orcutt Road, according a Sheriff’s Office news release.

They observed that Kyle Kenneth Hogue, 32, was apparently under the influence of a controlled substance, the release said.

Hogue was arrested and when deputies searched him, they found a glass pipe used for smoking methamphetamine in his jacket, according to the release.

Officials said they also found a loaded 9 mm pistol without a serial number, a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun with no serial number, a PR-24 police baton, 100 rounds of 9 mm ammunition and six rounds of 12-gauge ammunition in Hogue’s backpack, according to the release.

Hogue was taken to the Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of possessing unlawful paraphernalia, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and multiple firearms charges, the Sheriff’s Office said.

He was being held Monday morning in lieu of $35,000 bail, according to jail records.
