This morning about 2:15, officers stopped a speeder near SE 128/Powell. Driver was felony suspended, so officers arrested him and located this 7.62mm rifle with homemade suppressor and altered serial number. He faces several charges including Felon in Possession of Firearm. pic.twitter.com/L0ZWT0dNHB

Sometimes I would not write a cite, and sometimes I would. Traffic stops lead to a subject that has a warrant, or like the story above someone who is a felon in possession of a firearm.
It should come as no surprise that someone who is breaking the small laws might be breaking the big laws. I’ve stopped individuals that had outstanding warrants. The warrant is a court order and when you give the dispatcher a person’s name and date of birth the dispatcher will inform you if they have a warrant. The very next question is are they in custody?
Sometimes the reply is give me a moment. Once they are handcuffed and in the backseat I’d call the dispatcher and confirm they were in custody. Dispatch will notify the court that the warrant has been served.
The subject in the Tweet was felony suspended. That indicates that he has committed crimes involving the use of a motor vehicle. He is not only facing multiple charges involving state laws, he has also committed multiple federal crimes involving a firearm.Published in
