A traffic stop for a vehicle code violation led to the arrest of a 19 year old on multiple gun charges, illegal drug sales and a marijuana conversion lab. Jason Jimenez, the Elk Grove Police Department PIO posted on the department’s Facebook page about the arrest.

 

Last night, detectives from our Street Crimes Unit observed 19-year-old Alexander Churchward of Elk Grove driving a motor vehicle in the area of Contente Way and Forest Vista Way. Detectives stopped Churchward for a vehicle code violation.

A probable cause search of the vehicle led to the discovery of high capacity ammunition magazine in the trunk of the vehicle. A search of Churchward’s person led to the discovery of prescription medication not prescribed to Churchward. Churchward was arrested.

A search warrant was authorized for Churchward’s residence. The search of Churchward’s bedroom led to the discovery of a loaded firearm, two loaded high capacity magazines, additional ammunition, indicia related to narcotic sales, a concentrated marijuana conversion lab, as well as prescription medications. Churchward was transported to the main jail.
