A middle-of-the-night traffic stop by a officer yielded a stash of burglary tools and paraphernalia related to methamphetamine use in the driver's car, police said Thursday.
After witnessing a traffic violation, an officer pulled over a white sedan in the 8100 block of North Redwood Boulevard south of the motel at 4:30 a.m. Thursday, Sgt. Jennifer Welch said. During a conversation, the officer suspected the driver to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol and started a DUI investigation.
During a search of the vehicle, burglary tools and drug paraphernalia was found, leading to the arrest of the driver, Bon Kim, 31, of Larkspur, and a passenger, Riley J. Martin, 29, of Livermore.
Kim, a martial arts instructor, faces felony charges of possession of a leaded cane/billy club, possession of a dangerous drug without a prescription and possession of a controlled substance plus DUI and two other misdemeanors. Martin, who works in construction, faces two felony drug charges and three misdemeanors.
