REDDING, Calif. – Redding police have said that they stopped the driver of a BMW sedan at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Sunday near North Bonnyview Road and East Bonnyview Road for reckless driving.

They said they caught up with the driver, 47-year-old Gabriel Joseph Detrant, near Old Barn Way near Barrel Court.


Detrant arrest

According to police, Detrant threw 14 ounces of methamphetamine and more than two ounces of heroin out of the car window before stopping for the officer.

Detrant was already on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for maintaining a place for selling, using, or giving away a controlled substance, said police on Sunday afternoon.

They explained that Detrant has “a significant criminal history in Shasta County that dates back to 1993.”

Officers said he has been booked into the Shasta County Jail more than 50 times. This arrest for drugs is the third arrest in Shasta County for possession of controlled substances for sales since January 1 of this year.

The Redding Police Department explained that even though some criminals “are not eligible for state prison under current state laws” they will continue to arrest people in Redding who sell illegal drugs.
