A predawn traffic stop Sunday resulted in the arrest of a Vallejo man, according to American Canyon Police.

At 4:30 a.m., an officer stopped a motorist in the southbound lanes of Highway 29 at the American Canyon Road intersection for various vehicle code violations, according to Sgt. Jeff Matlock. A search of the vehicle turned up four rifle cartridges along with suspected methamphetamine, he said.

The driver, 48-year-old John Sears, was detained and booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of ammunition possession by a felon, as well as driving with a suspended license and misdemeanor counts of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
