CLEARFIELD -- Davis County Sheriff's deputies found more than a person with outstanding warrants, while simply running a license plate late Tuesday evening.
They found a loaded handgun -- a 380 semi-automatic -- as well as illegal drugs, said Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen.
The handgun was hidden by a TV set and next to a stash of cocaine, she said.
Officers arrested Kendrick Dewayne Armstead, 26, and Rochelle Torrance, 29. Both were booked in the Davis County Jail. Armstead admitted to officers the handgun was his and so were all of the illegal items, which included cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia and cash.
Torrance admitted to officers she had been smoking marijuana.
The arrest began when a deputy ran a license plate on a car and learned the car owner, Torrance, had a number of warrants issued for her arrest out of several justice courts in the area. At least two warrants were issued on Monday and one of them was for assault, according to the court website.
Two deputies knocked on the door where Torrance had parked her car, Poulsen said. When they went inside they could smell marijuana.
Poulsen said the deputies got a search warrant and found the illegal items.
Armstead told the officers about the handgun and where it was, Poulsen said.
