Toy gun leads to man’s arrest CERRITOS – A man who fell asleep on a Long Beach transit bus with a toy gun in his waistband was arrested Monday in Cerritos after a bus driver mistook the toy for a real gun and called authorities. Arriving deputies discovered the man also had a small knife in his pocket, Sheriff’s Department Lt. Scott Walker said. The bus driver stopped at the Los Cerritos Center shopping mall, 239 Los Cerritos Center, to take a break and noticed the sleeping man about 5:15 p.m., Walker said. The driver went to wake the man, who was the only rider left on the bus, and noticed what appeared to be a gun in his waistband, Walker said.
