An early-morning traffic stop Sunday north of Napa resulted in the arrest of a Santa Rosa man, according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies stopped a vehicle at 4 a.m. on southbound Highway 29 near the Darms Lane intersection for an apparent moving violation, according to Sgt. Jon Thompson. After identifying the woman at the wheel and her male passenger, deputies used the search dog Krieger to inspect the vehicle and discovered several suspected heroin baggies, as well as a stolen, loaded pistol and ammunition, Thompson said.
The passenger, 24-year-old Andrew Farve, was detained and booked into the Napa County jail. Allegations against Farve include firearm and ammunition possession by a felon, as well as drug possession with intent to sell, a probation violation in Sonoma County, and enhancements for gang membership.
The female driver was not charged or cited in the case, according to Thompson.
