A man currently on post-release community supervision for past firearm convictions was recently caught with guns and narcotics, Redding police say.

On the night of October 22, an officer spotted a pickup truck with affixed with what appeared to be trailer plates, rather than automobile plates. This was later confirmed with a records check, police said.

The officer contacted the occupants, identified as 44-year-old Christopher Rutledge of Temecula, 38-year-old David Tietjen of North Highlands, and 22-year-old Kristine Cannedy of Roseville.

Another records check revealed that Rutledge was on active post-release community supervision status. The officer conducted a compliance check by searching the vehicle and reportedly found a short-barrel shotgun, live ammo, over a pound of suspected heroin, paraphernalia, and a scale.

Police say that, although none of the three individuals were the registered owner of the truck, Rutledge accepted responsibility for it.

Rutledge was later booked at the Shasta County jail on a variety of charges. Tietjen was also booked on an unrelated felony warrant. Cannedy was released at the scene.
