CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - A traffic stop by Shasta County Sheriff's deputies early in the morning on Saturday ended with two arrests.
The stop was made in the 3800 block of Wellington Place at 1:50 a.m.
Deputies said they figured out that 45-year-old Justin Trevor Moon, the driver, was operating a vehicle with the wrong numbered license plates.
Deputies said the passenger used a fake name to conceal her identity because she had a felony warrant for her arrest. She was on parole at the time of the arrest. She was eventually identified as 35-year-old Corrine Faler of Redding.
Moon consented to a search according to deputies, who said that there was some methamphetamine in his pants pocket.
A loaded .38 Special revolver was discovered concealed in the vehicle after a search, said deputies. They also said they found rounds of ammunition and narcotics paraphernalia.
Moon was discovered to have had his driver's license suspended. Deputies said he had prior felony convictions for firearms violations. Because of these convictions, he was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.
Both were arrested and taken to the Shasta County Jail. Faler was taken in for her warrant. Moon was booked for various drug possession and firearm felonies and a few misdemeanors, including possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.
