Driver with Illegal Gun Arrested Following Traffic Crash in Pomona


POMONA (CNS) - The 21-year-old driver of an SUV that crashed and overturned tonight in Pomona was arrested after officers found the man was carrying an unregistered and un-serialized gun.

Police responded about 9:25 p.m. to the area of Towne and Philadelphia avenues and found an SUV on its side, according to Cpl. Paul Lucifora of the Pomona Police Department.

When officers looked inside the SUV to ensure everyone was out of the wrecked vehicle, they noticed ammunition throughout the inside of the SUV and conducted a pat down search driver Jeremy Duran of Adelanto, and found the illegal weapon in his waistband, Lucifora said.

Duran was arrested and booked at the Pomona city jail.
