An Oxnard man faces drug possession and weapons charges following an early morning traffic stop. Oxnard police say an officer stopped a vehicle for a code violation. During the stop, the officer discovered that the man was driving on a suspended license.
Upon searching the vehicle, the officer discovered a loaded firearm and arrested the driver. In addition, the search also produced a controlled substance. The man now faces felony drug possession charges with a firearm. He also faces misdemeanor charges of possessing a firearm with an altered or removed serial number and carrying a loaded firearm.
He posted a $50,000 bail, but he will return to court for arraignment on the charges this week.
