SONOMA COUNTY // Early this morning, November 21st, a County Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol on the 32000 block of McCray spotted a “suspicious black Volkswagen GTI” parked the wrong way on the street.

As the deputy approached, he noticed that the car was occupied by two people — one of whom is identified as 42-year-old Julian Salazar of Rio Lindo. Seated in the passenger seat, Salazar appeared to be wearing a flak jacket “with hard armor plates and rubber gloves.” The deputy also noticed a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the open window.

A “large bag containing over two pounds of marijuana” also appeared to be sitting on the floor at his feet.

Salazar was removed from the car and handcuffed, at which point the officer discovered twenty-seven live .45 caliber rounds in the pockets of Salazar’s pants. Being a convicted felon, Salazar is legally prohibited from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition.

While ultimately no actual gun was found, the marijuana was seized, as well as a glass meth pipe.

The person who’d been sitting in the driver’s seat, an unidentified female, was detained and questioned but released without charges. When asked about the flak jacket, Salazar claimed to wear it when he goes camping.
