RPD Arrests Man With Machete & Loaded Handgun

While carrying a machete may not technically be illegal in most cases, it’s a matter of where a person is and what else they might be doing. Thursday morning Redding Police were called about a man with a machete on Diamond Ridge Drive. They detained 41-year-old Daniel Hernandez-Gutierrez of Mexico near the Tractor Supply and found he also had a loaded 380 handgun with a box of ammo, and was apparently on drugs. He was booked into jail.
