Loaded pistol, drugs lead to 2 arrests in Rohnert Park

Rohnert Park police said they arrested two Sacramento residents Thursday after finding drugs and a loaded firearm inside their vehicle parked outside a hotel just west of Highway 101.

Lao Puapheng, 31, and Reychel Dizon, 33, were booked into Sonoma County Jail after a search of their car at the Good Nite Inn. Puapheng, who was on felony probation for a previous vehicle theft, had a loaded 9mm semi-automatic pistol, police said.

A large amount of marijuana, as well as heroin and methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and a high-capacity magazine, were also discovered in the vehicle, police said.
