JONES VALLEY, Calif. - Late Saturday night a Shasta County Deputy arrested a man for having a sawed-off shotgun and drug paraphernalia in the Jones Valley area.
The Sheriff's Office says the deputy was patrolling the area when he saw a vehicle parked on the side of the road on Dry Creek, near Silverthorn Road.
Because of the area and the time it was, the deputy decided to investigate further. As he began to do so, he saw a man walk towards the parked vehicle.
Quinton Lee Henderson, 22, did not see or hear the deputy and when the deputy identified himself, Henderson threw his shotgun into the ditch.
When checking records after detainment, it was found Henderson had five warrants out for his arrest; One for possession of a loaded firearm in public.
The deputy recovered the sawed-off shotgun Henderson threw and, during a search of Henderson, there was also drug paraphernalia discovered.
Henderson was booked into the Shasta County Jail after being arrested for the outstanding warrants as well as where he faces charges of having a sawed-off shotgun and being in possession of drug paraphernalia.
