Narrative:

A Kern County parolee and another male adult were arrested for possessing a loaded firearm with a high capacity magazine during a traffic enforcement stop in Fillmore.

On April 8, 2019, patrol deputies conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle for a speeding violation while driving through Fillmore. During the stop, deputies learned that one of the occupants, Eloidoro Marquez, was on parole out of Kern County. Pursuant to his parole terms, deputies searched Marquez and his vehicle, and they found a loaded handgun with a high capacity magazine holding 28 rounds of ammunition in the vehicle.

During the investigation, both Marquez and another occupant of the vehicle, (S) Anthony Davila, claimed ownership of the firearm and the high capacity magazine. Neither subject was the lawful owner of the firearm and Marquez is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of his parole status.
