ANDERSON, Calif. - A man was arrested for the possession of illegal drugs after a K-9 with the Anderson Police Department helped out.

Officers with the Anderson Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Balls Ferry Road for an equipment violation on Sunday, Jan. 5 around 9:40 p.m.

The officer learned the driver of the vehicle, 26-year-old Xaivier Dave Speare, of Redding. Speare had a suspended California Driver’s License, officers said. During a pat search of Speare, officers said they found metal knuckles.
