October 26, 1994

A Pasadena man was arrested outside the Loft bar Monday morning and charged with carrying a handgun, police said.

The owner of the bar in the 7800 block of Harbor Road, Bayside Beach, called police about 1:30 a.m. and told them one of his customers might have a gun. Officers arrived and found the owner and the customer standing outside the bar, police said.

The customer admitted having a gun and showed the officers his permit. Officers noted the permit's restrictions only allowed the customer to carry the gun between his home and his business at East Coast Entertainment Properties Inc., and only while doing normal business activities, police said.

Harry Christopher Lewis, 35, of the 7800 block of Harbor Road was then arrested and charged with carrying a handgun. The gun was a fully loaded .38-caliber revolver, police said.
