SALT LAKE CITY — Two people were arrested this week after they were found to have outstanding warrants during a traffic stop. One of them also had a gun and illegal drugs on him at the time of the arrest.
At 10:13 p.m. Wednesday, officers with the Salt Lake City Police Department’s Central Division Bike Squad noticed a car run a red light in the area of 500 S. 300 West.
When officers approached the vehicle, they spoke with the two passengers — identified as 25-year-old Robert Kirkham and 49-year-old Oba Tramel.
The two men were safely taken into custody after officers learned they had active warrants.
“While searching Tramel, officers found a gun and methamphetamine on him,” read a Friday press release from the SLCPD.
Tramel was booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail on one felony count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, one felony count of possession of a firearm by a restricted person, and multiple warrants.
Kirkam was also booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail on multiple warrants.
