Another loaded gun has been taken off Watsonville streets.
The semi-automatic handgun stolen from Burlingame was found in the front console of a car after agents from the county Gang Task Force stopped the driver for a vehicle code violation Tuesday.
Alex Fernandez, 26, was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed firearm, possessing stolen property and gang participation, according to Watsonville police Sgt. Tony Magdayao.
Fernandez, the sole occupant of the car, was stopped on Green Valley Road near Hi Grade Lane. Agents reportedly smelled marijuana coming from the car and Fernandez admitted he had recently smoked pot, according to Magdayao.
Agents searched his car for contraband and found the gun, Magdayao reported. Fernandez was booked into County Jail.
