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.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
