     Oxnard police say a traffic stop for a vehicle code violation resulted in the arrest of a man on drug and gun charges.

     Thursday morning around 9:40 detectives from the OPD's Drug Enforcement Unit were working uniformed patrol when they conducted a traffic stop for a vehicle code violation and allegedly found the driver in possession of a large quantity of US currency and fentanyl.

     That led to a search warrant and a search of the suspect's home in the 1300 block of Bottlebrush Place in Oxnard.

     Police say that led to the seizure of a large quantity of fentanyl, two stolen firearms, and a large quantity of US currency.

     They arrested 43-year-old Valentin Guzman of Oxnard on drug and gun charges and he was booked into the Ventura County Jail with a request that his bail be set at $1 million.
