Originally published as a Folsom Police Department Facebook post –  
“On Wednesday morning at about 9:00 a.m., one of our officers with the Community Crime Suppression Unit (CCSU), made a traffic stop for a simple vehicle code violation.
Upon contact, the officer learned the driver (Douglas Hamm, 26, of Fresno) was on active CDC Parole for a prior conviction of assault with a deadly weapon. Hamm’s passenger (Jimmy Kawelmacher, 45, of Sacramento) was on probation out of Sacramento County for multiple narcotics related charges.
During a search of the vehicle, the officer located a large quantity of methamphetamine, heroin, psilocybin (mushrooms), Fentanyl, burglary tools and approximately $6,000.00 in cash.
Upon further inspection, the officer also located a .38 revolver and ammunition concealed in a bag under the hood of the vehicle. Both Hamm and Kawelmacher are prohibited from owning or possessing firearms.
The officer kindly provided Hamm and Kawelmacher with a ride to the Sacramento County Main Jail, where they were booked on numerous felony firearm and narcotic related charges.
This is just another great reminder that there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop!”
