CHICO – Drugs and guns so often go together in law enforcement’s pursuit. On June 22 this fact bore out once again on Fern Avenue.
At 8:21 pm officers conducted the infamous traffic stop on a vehicle. During the stop they found a loaded handgun and half an ounce of cocaine.
30-year-old Joshua Jenkins found himself in trouble, facing various charges. These included –
- possession of cocaine for sales;
- being armed in the commission of a felony;
- possession of firearm with serial numbers obliterated;
- being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.
As this incident once again underscores, illegal guns and illegal guns, combined with a traffic stop, will not end well.
