“On Sunday, 7-11-21 at approximately 8:33 AM, an Officer with the Redding Police Department was conducting a proactive patrol of the downtown Redding area. The Officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on the 2200 block of Pine Street after observing multiple vehicle code violations. The Officer contacted the occupants who were later identified as Kevin Grey Linder 28 and Justin Edward Maughs 26. Linder, was initially uncooperative with the Officer.
Multiple Officers arrived on-scene to assist in the stop. During the course of this investigation, driver Maughs was found to have a suspended drivers license. Linder also provided a false name to Officers.
When his identity was confirmed, he was found to have three outstanding felony warrants for his arrest. Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and located multiple items of drug paraphernalia for using both methamphetamine and illicit opioids. Officers also located a loaded short barreled Winchester 20-gauge shotgun, ammunition and bear mace.
Both Linder and Maughs have multiple felony convictions and as such are prohibited from possessing firearms, ammunition or OC type spray. Maughs and Linder were both arrested and booked at the Shasta County Jail for possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person, possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle and possession of an assault weapon. Linder was charged with false impersonation.”
