CHICO, Calif. - A vehicle burglary suspect possessing a stolen gun and methamphetamine was arrested after refusing to leave his ex-girlfriend’s home, according to the Chico Police Department.


According to Chico police, officers got a call just before 11:50 p.m. Wednesday about a man arriving at his ex-girlfriend’s house at the 100 block of Parmac Road and refusing to leave.


Authorities arrived at the home shortly after and saw the man, Kaylum Rogers, 30 wearing a backpack and standing near her home, officials said.


When officers tried to get a hold of Rogers he ran away from police towards a business at 260 Cohasset Road, officials said.


Rogers was located at the area and taken into custody by police, but this time he was not wearing his backpack.


A short time later officers searched for Rogers’ backpack and found it inside a garbage can along the path he traveled, officials said.


Police say inside the backpack they found a stolen pistol from a Chico vehicle burglary, about an ounce of methamphetamine and the suspect’s wallet.


Rogers is considered a convicted felon and was not allowed to possess a firearm, according to Chico police.
