On Saturday, February 19, 2022 at approximately 7:50 p.m., a Santa Rosa Police Department officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with expired registration.
During his interaction with the vehicle’s occupants, the officer learned the female passenger was on felony probation and required to submit to a search of her person and property and the male driver consented to a search of his person. As the officer was searching the male, he said he was in possession of a “toy gun”.
The officer removed a small, but very real, Deringer-style .22-caliber pistol from the man’s jacket pocket. The gun was loaded with one round. His female companion, a convicted felon, admitted to previously being in possession of the firearm and recently giving it to him. The investigation then led the officer to the apartment in which the couple had been residing.
In addition to the gun, the officer located the following items during the probation searches of the vehicle and residence: approximately one ounce of methamphetamine; approximately 4.2 grams of heroin; narcotics packaging materials; and, a working digital scale.
