On April 11, 2021, deputies assigned to the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to Zuma Beach, Malibu, after receiving reports of a suspicious male harassing female patrons of the beach.

Upon their arrival the deputies were directed to an individual whom they identified as Mr. Kyle Kiddy, a resident of Riverside County, California. While speaking to Mr. Kiddy the deputies observed him to be armed with a rifle which was partially concealed by his long trench coat, a violation of California Penal Code section 25400, for which he was detained.

During the subsequent detention and investigation, the deputies discovered Mr. Kiddy was concealing an additional three firearms and associated ammunition on his person, as well as other items of evidence within his vehicle which was parked nearby.

All the guns he had on him were loaded. Lt. Jim Braden of the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station estimated that Kiddy had between 1,200 and 1,500 rounds of ammunition in the car and on his body.

On April 13, 2021, the facts of the above incident were presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who filed multiple charges against Mr. Kiddy who remains in police custody.

Kyle Kiddy, 34, is being held in lieu of $60,000 bail.

News from the Lost Hills Sheriff's Station:

Yesterday at approximately 5:30pm, we received a call for service of a possible drunk driver. Deputies spotted the vehicle driving erratically and endangering the safety of the public. Deputies initiated a short pursuit of the box truck on PCH at Webb Way, in the City of Malibu.

The suspect continued driving northbound on PCH into Ventura County where he was pursued by California Highway Patrol (CHP). During the pursuit by CHP, the suspect collided with a vehicle which caused him to lose control and crash into a ditch.

Lost Hills Sheriff’s deputies arrested the suspect for several charges including Driving Under the Influence and Hit and Run. The suspect was transported to Los Robles Hospital due to injuries he sustained during the collision.



It was later alleged that the suspect hit several vehicles on PCH prior to the pursuit. If you have any information on this incident, please contact the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station at (818) 878-1808 or lhsmediainvestigations@lasd.org.
