A man on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) has been arrested again after weapons and drugs, among other items, were reportedly found in his car during an enforcement stop.
According to a Sheriff’s Department press release, just before 9:30 AM on Sunday, June 21, a deputy pulled over 39-year-old Richard Barry Moon Jr. on the 1600 block of Central Avenue in McKinleyville.
Though the stop was initially for vehicle code violations, the deputy learned Moon had an active felony PRCS warrant.
The deputy searched Moon’s vehicle and found a loaded shotgun, a rifle that had been reported stolen during a recent burglary in Glendale, about 196 grams of heroin, prescription pills, drug paraphernalia, and about $6K in cash.
His two passengers were questioned and released at the scene.
A follow-up search of Moon’s residence turned up another firearm, a stun gun, and pepper spray.
Moon was ultimately booked at the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges including felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in a public place, and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
