Deputies from the Shasta County Sheriff's Office say they found a stolen vehicle in Happy Valley on Wednesday.
Deputies spotted the suspect, 33-year-old Marcelo Banuelos of Redding, fleeing from the vehicle at the Happy Valley Market fuel pumps. He led a deputy and his K9 partner into a heavily wooded area, where he was located laying between two downed trees.
During the investigation, deputies located a loaded hand gun that the suspect had discarded while running away.
Banuelos has been booked into the Shasta County Jail for possession of stolen property and obstructing a peace officer.
