Driver In San Leandro Traffic Stop Found With Loaded Gun

SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) – The driver of a car with expired registration tags in San Leandro was arrested early Friday morning he was found with a loaded gun, according to police.

At 12:53 a.m. an officer on patrol noticed a red 1988 Honda Accord with expired registration tabs driving south on Embers near Lewelling Boulevard and made a traffic stop, police said.

During the stop, the officer discovered the driver was on parole for a prior felony conviction and the officer conducted a search on the driver and his car, police said.

When the officer told the suspect, 20-year-old James Fallat, he was going to do a search, Fallat told the officer he had a revolver in his front right pocket, according to police.

The officer detained Fallat and searched his pockets and found a loaded .38 caliber revolver in his right front pocket. Fallat was then arrested for having a concealed loaded handgun.

He was later released, police said.

    This is more Kalifornia craziness – a felon found with a gun is released!!???
    My guess, if he had been an otherwise law abiding citizen the book
    would have been thrown at him.

    When my house was broken into, it took the cops 2 hours to show up … you have been given a false sense of security and in this day and age we should all concealed carry … just look at the protests, the cops are here to protect the established few, they are sycophants waiting to take your hard earned money just to pay their wages.
