ANDERSON, Calif. -

Anderson Police arrested two suspects during a traffic stop in the Anderson Heights neighborhood.    Joshua Isaacson, 37 of Redding, was arrested Monday at 1:38 p.m. after an officer pulled him over at Pinion Avenue and Knobcone Drive.

The Anderson Heights area has been a focus for police due to an increase in theft and property crimes.

Police said Isaacson was driving through the Anderson Heights area and was pulled over for traffic violations including double yellow line and signaling infractions. Police said Isaacson lied about his name to police to avoid being arrested on outstanding felony warrants.  Isaacson was taken into custody.

Danielle Leeann Hodges, a 29 year old transient, was a passenger in the car.

Officers said during a search of the vehicle, they recovered narcotics, drug paraphernalia, firearms, ammunition, counterfeit currency, stolen property and a stun gun.  The narcotics were identified as methamphetamine. Scales and packaging material were also located.

The stolen property had been taken during a burglary earlier in the month. Officers returned the property to the owner.

Isaacson was out of custody on his own recognizance for felony narcotics offenses and is a convicted felon.  He was booked at the Shasta County Jail on his outstanding arrest warrants, along with new felonious weapons and narcotics violations.

Hodges was also booked at the Shasta County Jail for suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
