REDDING, Calif. – A Redding man was arrested Tuesday after police say he got onto a bus with a loaded AR-15 rifle.

Around 10:34 a.m., RPD responded to a report of a man at the RABA bus stop at Twin View Blvd and Caterpillar Rd. Officers contacted 21-year-old Anthony Jair Demedeiros shortly after he boarded a Raba Bus.

Officers searched Demederios and located a loaded AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle. The loaded rifle was recently reported stolen during a residential burglary in Trinity County, police said.

Demedeiros is on Post Release Community Supervision for a prior conviction of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to RPD. Demederios was last arrested by Redding Police on January 4, 2021, for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Police say they do not know Demederios intentions with the rifle, as he refused to give officers an explanation.

The fog tucked us in last night, leaving for some surreal driving conditions on the roads. We see the potential for a repeat situation this evening for the valley.
