While on patrol in Ukiah just after midnight on November 10, a deputy conducted the once again infamous traffic stop, this time for “an observed vehicle code violation.”
The deputy observed that both the drover and the passenger were “frantically moving around ” in the car.
The driver, 39-year-old Johnny Azbill, was a known gang member.
Consenting to a pat search for weapons, Azbill stepped out of the vehicle. The deputy found no weapons on the suspect, but he did find a meth pipe.
The passenger, 32-year-old Jennyfer Hallmark-Duman, became argumentative as she exited the vehicle. She would not allow the deputy to search her for weapons, but did produce a pair of handcuffs.
A second deputy who had arrived on scene noticed a bulge in the rear of Duman’s rear waistline. It was “the grip of a handgun tucked into her waistband.”
Hallmark-Duman was also detained in handcuffs with her driver. She had a loaded Glock 9mm. A loaded AR rifle was in the vehicle’s trunk.
Azbill, a convicted felon is “prohibited from owning or possessing any firearm or ammunition.”
“Other items located within the vehicle included night vision goggles, additional ammunition, a gas mask, a ski mask, and several bags of processed marijuana. ”
Azbill was arrested for possession of an assault weapon, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, possession of a controlled substance while armed with a loaded firearm and possession of paraphernalia. His bail was set at $150,000.
