By , Columbian staff writer

At 1 a.m. Monday, a Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrested 35-year-old Dylan J. Anderson, who had an outstanding arrest warrant and a previous charge of attempt to elude law enforcement. Deputies spotted Anderson while patrolling around the U-Haul located at 82nd Street and Northeast Highway 99 in Hazel Dell.

After additional investigation, a search warrant was obtained and executed on a storage unit believed to be associated with Anderson. Deputies recovered firearms, four of which were stolen; ammunition; ballistic-style body armor; nearly a quarter-pound of suspected methamphetamine; and more than 2,500 suspected fentanyl pills.

Anderson was booked on an outstanding misdemeanor arrest warrant and on suspicion of attempt to elude, six counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, four counts of possessing a stolen firearm, and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.
