WATERLOO (KWWL) - Waterloo police arrested a man Friday during a traffic stop for a gun violation.

Officers with the Violent Crime Apprehension Team initiated the traffic stop in the 1100 block of Columbia St., in reference to an ongoing investigation and multiple violations. During the stop, two suspects fled on foot. One of the suspects, 21-year-old Kalon Deon Bruce of Waterloo, was taken into custody during the pursuit and was found with a .40 caliber semi-auto handgun. Police say the handgun was stolen from a previous burglary in Waterloo.

Officers with the VCAT unit arrested Bruce on March 9 of this year with another handgun during a vehicle pursuit. During that incident, Bruce was charged with carrying weapons and interference with official acts involving a firearm. On that date, he was booked into the Black Hawk County Jail on a Class D felony for interference with official acts involving a firearm, carrying weapons and possession of stolen property.
