On the evening of March 18th, deputies conducted a traffic stop on an SUV for a vehicle violation in the city of Vallejo.
As deputies conversed with 28-year-old Mark Bester (Vallejo), he informed the deputies he had “a warrant for parole.”
Bester was safely removed from the vehicle and detained. A records check confirmed he was a parolee at large.
During a search of the vehicle, deputies located a loaded black 9mm handgun in the passenger compartment of the SUV.
What’s alarming is that Bester was within reach of the firearm at the initial time of stop.
Post investigation, deputies arrested Bester for being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm in a vehicle, and other related charges. Bester was later booked into the Solano County Jail.
