If you’re going to be driving along with both illegal drugs and a loaded firearm in your car, you’d better drive as carefully as you can.

A Westminster Police Department officer patrolling in the area of Goldenwest Street and Trask Avenue around midnight on Tuesday pulled over an automobile for vehicle code violations.

During the traffic stop, the officer noticed the driver had a suspended driver’s license and spotted what he believed to be methamphetamine “in plain view” in the vehicle. 

There were also multiple warrants for the female passenger.

A search of the vehicle followed and officer found a loaded handgun underneath the driver’s seat.

Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested. 

The driver was a convicted felon and it was his second arrest by the WPD for possessing a loaded firearm.
