At 4:00 a.m. this morning, an Orange police officer conducted an occupied vehicle check in a parking lot near N. Canal and Meats. A records check of the license plate confirmed the vehicle had a felony warrant for involvement in catalytic converter thefts.



A high-risk stop was done and a male and female occupant were detained without incident.

The male had an active warrant for drug offenses and a loaded magazine was found on his person.

A search of the vehicle was done and officers located two loaded handguns with high capacity magazines, methamphetamine and paraphernalia.

The vehicle was impounded and both subjects were booked into OCJ for gun and drug related offenses along with the warrant.

Thanks to the Orange graveyard shift police officers for their proactivity and keeping folks safe while they are sleeping.
