A man was arrested early Sunday morning after walking through McKinleyville with a loaded rifle.

On Jan. 21, 2018 around 2:49 a.m. a deputy patrolling the 1400 block of Glendale Drive observed a man walking along the roadway carrying a rifle. The deputy contacted the man, later identified as 29-year-old Brandon James Phelps. Phelps complied with the deputy’s request to put the weapon down and was detained without incident. The rifle Phelps was carrying was found to be loaded.

During a search of Phelps, deputies also located an unloaded pistol concealed in his front pants pocket.

Phelps was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on the following charges: carrying a firearm capable of being concealed, carrying a loaded firearm in a public place and a misdemeanor arrest warrant for vehicle code violations.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
