A parolee remained behind bars Saturday following his arrest during a traffic stop in Wildomar, records showed.

A deputy on patrol early Friday pulled over the driver of a Kia Rio in the 22100 block of Bundy Canyon Road for a vehicle code violation. A records check showed the driver was on probation for a drug-related offense and that the passenger was wanted on a warrant, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. David Cardoza said.

Methamphetamine and a mortar-type firework were found inside the car. The firework required members of a sheriff's bomb squad to remove it, Cardoza said.

Jeffrey Jay Fleming, 43, of Santa Ana, was arrested on suspicion of violating his parole and other violations. Kimberly Ann Holguin, 39, of Canyon Lake, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, but was released Friday after posting $5,000 bail, records showed.

Cardoza did not specify which of the suspects drove the Kia. News about the arrests weren't made public until Saturday.

That's a pretty bad ass firework though. I wonder how much meth the guy had on him. The fine for possessing that big puppy might be more than the meth charge.

FYI..lived here a long time. Bundy Canyon area used to be Lake Elsinore. As far as Im concerned, I love our cities. Lots of great schools, great churches, great neighbors...there is something for everybody in these towns. We have every sport under the sun, a couple of pretty great lakes, a sky diving school, a motorcycle track that comes and goes, a beautiful baseball stadium horse trails a sorta bowling alley, movie....etc..and our houses are affordable. You don't like it here, MOVE or quit visiting. OVER IT.

you have a swarm of degenerate meth addicts who associate with criminals from both sides of the border and our children are not safe around you...... That's why we want you to move out to the desert like most normal rodents..... Slab City for instance.

Meth, fireworks and porn go well together. Wait, the inland empire and meth are the best fit, right Alek? What would the IE be without meth?
