REDDING, Calif. -- Redding Police arrested a man on gun and drug charges after what began as a traffic stop.

On Monday, December 7, at 4:39 p.m., an officer pulled over a blue 1997 Honda Civic for a lighting violation on Canby Road near the Mt Shasta Mall.

He found that the driver, 26-year-old Devin Wyteagle Kuykendall, was on parole.

They booked him at the Shasta County Jail on the listed charges.
