“On Friday morning just after 1:00 a.m., one of our officers spotted a suspicious male subject walking beneath the Highway 50 overpass at Placerville Road.
The officer made contact and learned the subject, 42 year old Robert Kelly of Somerset, was on probation for a prior conviction of vehicle theft.
Kelly physically resisted officers’ efforts to detain him for a probation search, and fled on foot. During the struggle, one of the officers on scene felt a gun in Kelly’s waistband.
After a brief foot pursuit, Kelly was taken into custody but the firearm was not located.
A K9 Officer from the Sacramento Police Department responded to the scene to assist with an article search. After retracing the route of the foot pursuit, officers located a .40 caliber Glock handgun and a loaded magazine.
An additional magazine was later located in Kelly’s hotel room.
The handgun was determined to be stolen during a commercial burglary in Sacramento.
Kelly was arrested and booked into county jail for multiple firearms related charges, as well as resisting arrest
