RPD: Officers Uncover AK-47 And 30 Round Clip During Traffic Stop

A man pulled over for expired registration tags overnight ended up being arrested for weapons. The Buick was stopped near the Lake Boulevard/North Market Street intersection at 1AM, and Redding Police say they could see drug paraphernalia. The driver, 33-year-old Duncan Devine, said he had a loaded gun in the car, but he has prior felonies forbidding gun possession. A search was done and officers reported finding a loaded 9 millimeter semi-auto pistol, along with many rounds of ammunition for an AK-47 and a 30 round magazine.
