A crash on Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo last week led to the arrest of a wanted felon after California Highway Patrol officers allegedly found drugs and guns in his car.
At about 4:30 p.m. Nov. 30, CHP officers responded to a non-injury collision on southbound Highway 101 near Madonna Road and contacted the driver they say was at fault, according to a CHP spokesman.
The driver, Joshua Nathaniel Stone, 37, of Ukiah told the officer he had a warrant out of Mendocino County. Officers discovered he had a no-bail warrant and a suspended license.

After Stone was taken into custody, officers searched the vehicle and found two loaded handguns with serial numbers worn off, a shotgun, an AR-15 rifle with a 30-round magazine loaded with 29 rounds and approximately 200 additional rounds of ammo, according to CHP spokesman Jordan Richards.
Officers also allegedly found about 50 pounds of packaged marijuana, containers of black tar heroin and paraphernalia including syringes and weighing scales.
The CHP says Stone is a convicted felon with prior weapon and drug charges.
He was booked in the San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of possessing an assault weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm, possessing a controlled substance for sale and other charges.
Stone remained in custody Thursday in lieu of $100,000 bail.
