An Elk Grove man was arrested after an early morning traffic stop after he was found in possession of a handgun in violation of his probation.

Just before 2 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, a vehicle operated by Benjamin Iwakiri, 23, was stopped near Bruceville Road and Seasons Drive by Elk Grove Police for a vehicle code violation. After learning Iwakiri was on probation, a search of his vehicle led to the discovery of a loaded concealed handgun.

Iwakiri was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a concealed firearm, possession of a concealed firearm not the registered owner, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and violating the terms of his probation. After being booked into the county jail, Iwakiri was released custody later that day.
