Burlingame distracted driver crackdown leads to felony arrest
December 27, 2013, 05:00 AM

The Burlingame Police Department’s distracted driving enforcement campaign led to the Saturday arrest of a man for illegally being in possession of a loaded firearm.

On Dec. 21, police pulled over a driver for talking on a cellphone when they discovered the passenger, Romelle Lawson, a 28-year-old from Pittsburg, was on probation, according to police.

A probation compliance search turned up a backpack belonging to Lawson that contained a loaded firearm, police reported.

Lawson was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a firearm and booked into county jail, according to police.

In addition to Lawson’s arrest, the distracted driver enforcement campaign led to 24 citations and six warnings, according to police. Tickets for driving while talking on a cellphone may cost a minimum of $150, according to police. The Burlingame Police Department will conduct a total of seven such campaigns throughout the fiscal year.
