A Glendale Police Department patrol officer arrested three men after conducting a traffic stop on a suspicious car with paper plates headed toward the Glendale Galleria on Jan. 27 at about 1 p.m.
The men inside the car had prior arrests, plus probation and parole statuses. A search of the car revealed cocaine, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and burglary tools in the car. Officers also located a hidden loaded handgun.
GPD patrol officers arrested the men, one of whom had provided a false identity during the stop to conceal that he’s actually a parolee and at large.
