A boy on probation for assault was arrested in Pomona Thursday evening for allegedly carrying a loaded gun authorities said they found in his backpack.
Officers patrolling the north alley of 700 Ivory Lane, west of Towne Avenue, spotted a suspiciously parked car with two people inside smoking marijuana, including one they recognized as a boy on probation, according to Sgt. M. Medellin of the Pomona Police Department.
The boy was seen taking off his backpack, which, due to his probation status and search terms, was searched by officers and a loaded gun was found inside, Medellin said.
The boy was arrested without incident. His age and name were not disclosed.
