An Oregon State Police troopoer spotted a car headed eastbound on Highway 126 east of Florence and saw it had a tail light out. He pulled the 2005 Saab over and began questioning the occupants. It wasn’t long before the trooper discovered the two were not only packing fire arms but drugs as well.
Inside the vehicle was found a loaded .22 caliber handgun and an AR-15 assault rifle, which had earlier been reported stolen out of Coos Bay. Also in the car they found three ounces of crystal meth, marijuana, over a thousand dollars in cash and plenty of false identification.
Driver Andres Gamboa, 19, of Eugene (second from bottom) and his passenger Cesar Erives Gonzalez, 22, (bottom) also from Eugene were taken into custody. They were transported to the Lane County Jail and booked on charges of Unlawful Possession with Intent to sell methamphetamine and unlawful possession of firearms. Gonzales was also booked on an additional charge of delivery of cocaine.
