A man previously convicted of assault with a deadly weapon has been arrested again in connection to a stolen vehicle.

Riverside police officers responded to the 3500 block of Hiawatha Avenue on Sunday, February 9th, to investigate a GPS ping from a reportedly stolen Chevy Tahoe.

As officers approached the car, the suspect — later identified as 27-year-old Cesar Murillo Chavez — initially tried to flee on foot but quickly surrendered.

Upon searching the vehicle, officers found a loaded handgun, illegal narcotics, and a backpack containing a possibly stolen computer.

Chavez was arrested and booked on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of illegal narcotics, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of an unregistered firearm.

Police say he has since posted bail.
