(BCN) — Antioch police took two guns off the street last week after what started as a routine traffic stop. At 10 p.m. last Thursday, police attempted to pull over a vehicle on Sycamore Drive in Antioch.

The driver decided not to stop, forcing police to pursue the vehicle into Oakley. The driver eventually stopped at the Arco gas station at 4501 Main St. in Oakley. Police arrested the driver with the assistance of Oakley police.

There were two passengers in the vehicle who were released. Police said the driver had prior felony convictions. An ensuing search revealed he allegedly possessed an AR-15 pistol and a Glock handgun.

Police booked the driver into county jail on suspicion of possessing multiple firearms and evading police.
