Two men were arrested after a traffic stop in Auburn on a number of drug and weapons charges.
An Auburn Police officer stopped a vehicle on Lincoln Way at about 10:45 p.m. Friday, according to a press release from Sgt. David Neher.
The driver, identified as Lucas Strom, exited the vehicle, but then pushed the officer before trying to flee on foot.
Strom was eventually arrested after allegedly resisting and being pepper-sprayed.
During a search, Auburn Police officers allegedly located a sizeable amount of heroin and found that Strom had an active burglary warrant out of Utah.
They also allegedly found a loaded .45-caliber handgun and a digital scale.
Strom was booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance for sale, resisting arrest, possessing drugs while armed, providing a false identity and possessing a controlled substance, as well as the out-of-county warrant. He was being held without bail.
Strom’s passenger, Sean Isaacks, allegedly was found in possession of meth and a switchblade knife. He was booked and released on $11,000 bail.
