Two suspects were taken into custody Thursday, after they were found to be in possession of a stolen firearm in Stevenson Ranch, officials said.
On Thursday, around 6:30 p.m., deputies were patrolling Pico Canyon Road near Chiquilia Lane in Stevenson Ranch when they observed a vehicle exit a local business without signaling, furthermore deputies observed the vehicle’s brake lights were non-operable, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“Deputies conducted a traffic stop to warn/cite the driver,” Arriaga said.
As deputies contacted the occupants of the vehicle, male and female, they smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from inside the car, according to Arriaga.
“While speaking with the driver, (a) male adult, they recovered a bag of marijuana,” Arriaga said.
Deputies conducted a search of the vehicle and recovered a loaded firearm, according to Arriaga.
Steven Noone, 37, from Fairview, and Jennifer King, 39, from Sacramento, were arrested and booked for carrying a loaded gun that was not registered to them, a felony, Arriaga added.
Both were arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s jail with bail set at $0, according to arrest records.Do you have a news tip?
