A Butte County man with a prior felony conviction was recently arrested again after allegedly being caught with guns, ammunition, and suspected narcotics during a traffic stop, according to a law enforcement press release.

In late December, two California Highway Patrol officers conducted a traffic stop and noticed what appeared to be a firearm in plain sight inside the vehicle. The officers searched the vehicle and reportedly discovered that not only was the visible firearm loaded, but that the individual also had a shotgun and several hundred rounds of ammunition in the vehicle.

As well, officers also found an undisclosed amount of suspected methamphetamine in the vehicle.

The driver, identified as 44-year-old Michael Gorham, was also found to have prior felony convictions.

Gorham was ultimately taken into custody on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, possession of a loaded firearm, and possession of controlled substances.
