The deputies were patrolling the COC parking lot when they spotted two men sitting in a parked car. They contacted the men and further investigation apparently led to the discovery of the pills and the handgun.
The pair were arrested on suspicion of a number of felony charges, including possession of a controlled substance for sales, transportation of a controlled substance, and possession of a firearm while on a college campus. Neither was a student at the school.
They were both booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station. They later posted a $50,000 bond each and were released pending future court proceedings.
The investigation is continuing. There is no further information at this time.
