CHICO, Calif. – A 23-year-old felon on probation from Alameda County was arrested outside of a party in Chico early Sunday morning for possession of a 9mm Glock-style ghost gun according to police.

Officers responded to a call at a party in the 400 block of W. 5th Street in Chico at approximately 2:39 a.m. The caller told dispatchers that someone was outside of the residence causing a disturbance, saying the person was in possession of a firearm.

Police said it took them less than a minute to arrive. The officers said they contacted 23-year-old Samuel Destine-Terrance Trammell outside of the residence. Officers said Trammell was “uncooperative” and that he attempted to get away from the police who apprehended him.

Police said before the arrest Travell reached into his waistband and discarded the ghost gun. Officers said the Glock style 9mm was fully loaded with an extended high-capacity magazine.

Trammell was on probation in Alameda County for a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. Chico police officers charged him for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and for resisting or delaying a peace officer.

Trammell was booked into the Butte County Jail.
