Details:

On Wednesday, June 09, 2021, deputies assigned to patrol operations conducted an occupied vehicle check in front of the 32700 block of Lakeview Terrace, Wildomar. Deputies contacted Marcus Edwards, 47 years old, of Lake Elsinore, who was sitting in the driver seat of his vehicle. Deputies located an open alcoholic beverage in the cup holder immediately behind Edwards. Deputies requested Edwards exit his vehicle. As he was exiting his vehicle, he threw an unknown black bag onto the property which landed on the roof of an E-Z Up. Edwards was subsequently detained and placed into the back seat of a patrol vehicle.

A search of the black handbag revealed a loaded .380 Jimenez Arms handgun. Edwards also had over 11 grams of suspected methamphetamine on his person. A record check indicated Edwards is a prior felon.

Edwards was subsequently arrested and transported to the Cois Byrd Detention Center in the city of Murrieta for booking purposes.
