FAIRFIELD — A traffic stop lead to the arrest of two felons Wednesday after Solano County sheriff’s deputies say they uncovered firearms at the men’s home in Vallejo.

Sheriff’s Enforcement Team deputies Jason Speakman and Chad Sayre conducted a traffic stop at 11:30 a.m. on a vehicle with expired registration near the intersection of Sutter and Maine streets in Vallejo, according to a sheriff’s press release.

After making contact, the deputies learned that the driver, 25-year-old Nicholas James Ahrendt, was on felony probation out of Solano County for possession of stolen property, according to the release. Deputies conducted a probation search of Ahrendt’s vehicle and said they found evidence that indicated Ahrendt possibly had firearms at his home.

Speakman and Sayre detained Ahrendt, who is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition because of a prior felony conviction, and took him to his nearby residence. After arrival, Ahrendt was unable to get into the house and called his roommate to come to the residence and open the door for the deputies.

After Ahrendt’s roommate, 32-year-old Justin Robert Remedios, arrived at the home, deputies learned that he was also on probation – out of Shasta County – and was a convicted felon who was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.

Speakman and Sayre detained both Ahrendt and Remedios and conducted a probation search of the home, where Speakman and Sayre said they found two firearms – a 12-gauge shotgun and a rifle – along with numerous rounds of unspent ammunition.

Ahrendt and Remedios were arrested and booked into the Solano County jail on suspicion of felony probation violation, being convicted felons in possession of a firearm and being convicted felons in possession of live ammunition.

Remedios and Ahrendt are scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Fairfield.

    Did you really show up and let the cops in on probation with two guns inside? Next time maybe you'll be smart enough to keep on driving past your house when you see the cops out front...

    That's an easy one. being they are both convicted felons they could not of legally bought them. obviously they bought them off the street, more than likely from another convicted felon on parole.
