After police stopped a car with expired registration in San Leandro early Friday morning the driver was found with a loaded gun, police said. At 12:53 a.m. an officer on patrol noticed a red 1988 Honda Accord with expired registration tabs driving south on Embers near Lewelling Boulevard and made a traffic stop, police said.
During the stop, the officer discovered the driver was on parole for a prior felony conviction and the officer conducted a search on the driver and his car, police said. When the officer told the suspect, 20-year-old James Fallat, he was going to do a search, Fallat told the officer he had a revolver in his front right pocket, according to police.
The officer detained Fallat and searched his pockets and found a loaded .38 caliber revolver in his right front pocket. Fallat was then arrested for having a concealed loaded handgun. He was later released, police said.
