A 45-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening on gun and drug violations following a traffic stop in Pomona.
Major Crimes Task Force officers were in the area of Reservoir and Philadelphia streets about 8:40 p.m. when they noticed a vehicle with no front license plate and illegal window tint and attempted to stop the vehicle, according to Cpl. K. Gutierrez of the Pomona Police Department.
The driver, identified as Pete Garcia of Pomona, pulled the vehicle into the parking lot of a fast food restaurant and consented to a search of the vehicle. An officer found a loaded gun in the vehicle and Garcia was holding drugs and drug paraphernalia, Gutierrez said.
Garcia was taken into custody and booked at the Pomona City Jail.
