REDDING, Calif. -

A man wanted by Shasta County law enforcement was arrested after he was spotted playing slot machines at Win-River Casino in Redding.

On Saturday around 9:40 a.m. Shasta County Sheriff's deputies said they got a tipĀ  that 58-year-old Glenn Horner was currently inside Win-River Casino in Redding playing slots.

Horner was on Shasta's Most Wanted and had three warrants totaling $300,000.

After receiving the tip deputies went to the casino.

An extensive search of prior contacts was conducted by a Shascom dispatcher and a vehicle that Horner was affiliated with was spotted in the Win-River parking lot.

A deputy watched the vehicle until it started to leave the parking lot.

As it was leaving Win-River, it turned onto northbound Highway 273.

When deputies attempted to pull the vehicle over, it allegedly tried to evade them by recklessly driving into three lanes of traffic, through a red light and onto Westside Road.

Deputies said they quickly surrounded the vehicle causing it to stop.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Horner.

Deputies found several other adults inside the vehicle with him.

Two males inside were identified as 52-year-old Robert Tophan and 23-year-old Jason Belzer.

Tophan and Belzer both had warrants for their arrest and were taken into custody.

Four women were also inside but were released.

Inside the vehicle deputies said they found a double barreled black powder pistol, ammunition, marijuana and methamphetamine.

They also said they found multiple syringes and items indicating drug sales.

The three arrested men were taken to the Shasta County Jail and booked on their warrants.
