A 41-year-old documented gang member on active parole was arrested Friday evening in Pomona when police found a gun in his vehicle.
Members of the Major Crimes Task Force spotted the parolee about 8:30 p.m. near a 7-Eleven store in the 2000 block of Towne Avenue, north of the San Bernardino (10) Freeway, and made contact with him, according to Sgt. M. Medellin of the Pomona Police Department.
A search of the man’s vehicle turned up a loaded gun in the center console and officers placed Jorge Jesus Olmos of Lancaster under arrest, Medellin said.
Olmos is a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing firearms. He was later booked at the Pomona city jail, Medellin said.
