The deputy also found a suppressor, 49 large capacity rifle magazines and dozens of bags of ammo cans with 15,000 to 20,000 rounds of ammunition, sheriff's officials said.

An explosives ordinance disposal technician was called to the scene because explosives were also found in Cean's car, sheriff's officials said.

Cean was arrested and booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
