CHICO, Calif. - Saturday night in Chico a police officer ended up making an arrest for possession of a fully-loaded 9mm Glock style “ghost gun” after a traffic-related stop. The officer also said more than ½ pound of cannabis was also located inside of the vehicle during the search.
Chico police said the officer “developed probable cause” to search 36-year-old Kasean Lesiel Carillo Wood and his vehicle. The officer said the driver was pulled over for a vehicle code infraction and was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop.
Wood’s vehicle was stopped and searched Saturday night at approximately 10:40 p.m. near Esplanade and W. 10th Avenue.
Police described the ghost gun as a handgun assembled by the end-user that does not have a serial number. They said this particular ghost gun had a threaded barrel which made it capable of accepting a sound suppressor. The threaded barrel, said police, qualified the handgun as an “assault weapon” under California law.
Wood was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, an assault weapon, and ammunition. He was also charged for carrying a concealed firearm and for cannabis possession.
Woods was taken to the Butte County Jail after his arrest.
