On patrol during the night on January 28, a deputy with Lake County Sheriff’s conducted a traffic stop on a Dodge Charger.
Of the vehicle’s four occupants, 42-year-old Shannon Henson caught law enforcement’s attention because he was on Post Release Community Supervision.
Therefore, deputies searched the vehicle, finding a syringe, a bag of meth and, in the trunk, another syringe and a disassembled assault rifle. They also found a magazine containing 35 rounds.
Evidence on Henson’s cell phone indicated that he was travelling to Sacramento to sell or trade the rifle.
“Henson was placed under arrest for being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Felon in Possession of Ammunition, Possession of an Assault Rifle, Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale, Transportation of a Controlled Substance, and Transportation of an Assault Rifle. Henson has an extensive criminal history related to narcotics, stolen property, and firearms. He was booked into the Lake County Jail where he remains in custody on a no bail hold. The other occupants of the vehicle were released with no charges.”
