Police officers arrested two people around 2:30 a.m. Friday in 22100 block of Bundy Canyon in Wildomar after discovering illegal drugs and fireworks inside the vehicle they were traveling in.

Jeffrey Jay Fleming, 43, of Santa Ana and Kimberly Ann Holguin, 39, of Canyon Lake were traveling in a blue Kia Rio when they were stopped and contacted by police officers for an equipment violation, according to a Riverside County Sheriff's report.

When an officer conducted a record check on Fleming and Holguin they discovered Fleming was on felony probation for a narcotic-related offense and that Holguin had an active felony warrant, according to the report.

A probation search of the vehicle was then conducted by a police K-9, which is when officers came across the undisclosed quantity of methamphetamine and the firework, according to Sgt. David Cardoza. Advertisement

The firework, a D.O.T. class "B" mortar type firework, was taken by the Sheriff's Hazardous Device Team, Cardoza said.

Fireworks that receive a class "B" distinction are considered professional grade. The State of California, which allows "safe and sane" fireworks to only be sold a few days each year, has strict laws and penalties for possessing and transporting professional grade equipment without a proper pyrotechnics license.

Fleming was arrested for violation of parole and pending misdemeanor charges for possession of the firework while Holguin was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

Both individuals were transported to Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta.

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Officers Burch or Mosca at the Wildomar Police Department at (951)-245-3300 during normal business hours. Those calling in after hours should call (951) 776-1099.
