Sacramento police: Partially hidden gun leads to arrest

Published: Wednesday, Apr. 9, 2014 - 7:47 am

A chase ensued just after a Sacramento police officer said he spied a gun underneath the leg of a man seated in a car.

Police said that Seylin Sengavanpheng, 24, was sitting in a car in the 7800 block of College Town Drive, near Highway 50 and Howe Avenue, at about 11 p.m. Monday when the officer approached the vehicle. Under Sengavanpheng’s leg was a weapon, according to a police activity log.

Sengavanpheng drove away and a vehicle pursuit began. When Sengavanpheng pulled over, he fled on foot only to be eventually captured.

A gun was never found but rounds of ammunition were inside the car, according to police. Sengavanpheng was booked into jail on suspicion of evading a police officer, possession of a firearm by a felon and marijuana possession.
