A Port Angeles man was arrested Tuesday in Port Gamble on suspicion of possession of drugs and two illegal firearms.
Poulsbo police conducted a traffic stop that was part of an ongoing operation to catch drug traffickers after receiving a tip of a reported vehicle sale in June.
The driver of a blue Honda Civic identified himself as 39-year old Robert Hampton, but he had no valid identification on him.
Hampton was initially placed under arrest for allegedly driving without a valid license. Upon his arrest police found a .357 caliber Ruger revolver in his waistband. The gun had been reported stolen from a vehicle prowl in Port Angeles that morning.
A K-9 unit supplied by the Suquamish Police Department to search the car after a warrant was granted by the Kitsap County Superior Court.
The search turned up about 24.6 grams of methamphetamine and 3.6 grams of heroin as well as Glock. 40 that had several rounds and at least one round loaded into the chamber.
Hampton was booked on several charges, including possession with intent to sell, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm, with bail set at $100,000.
Hampton had a previous history of domestic violence charges, which precluded him from having access to firearms.
