A Simi Valley man pleaded guilty to felony drug possession, a firearm charge and a misdemeanor drug charge. Police conducted a traffic stop after noticing the man’s vehicle registration had expired.
During the stop, the man admitted that he had a loaded firearm in the vehicle, as well as a large quantity of narcotics. Upon searching the vehicle, police found a .38 revolver, 100 rounds of ammunition, Xanax pills and 2.5 ounces of methamphetamine. They also found syringes.
The man also had felony warrants for his arrest, which made him ineligible for bail. He pleaded guilty to a single felony firearm count, and a felony drug possession for sale count. He also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug possession count. In addition, he admitted to five special allegations related to the case.
He will return to court on August 16, 2018 for sentencing.
