A man who was pulled over for reportedly running a red light had a stolen gun and illegal drugs on him at the time, according to police.

Jose Luis Saavedra, 23, was arrested Saturday shortly before midnight after being stopped on Academy Blvd. near Academy Park Loop.

Police say Saavedra did not provide a valid ID, which prompted further investigation.

Saavedra allegedly had a stolen .45 caliber gun, 6.1 grams of drugs that reportedly were packaged for distribution and $3370.00.

Saavedra is facing multiple felony, misdemeanor and traffic charges.
