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.
