APPLE VALLEY – A 25-year-old Victorville felon was arrested after being witnessed taking selfies with a handgun inside a vehicle.
On Wednesday afternoon, the High Desert Regional Gang team was conducting a follow-up investigation in the area of Stoddard Wells and the I-15 in a business parking lot. They noticed a grey Honda Civic stop around 20 yards from the deputy, who was inside the vehicle. A female exited the vehicle and went into the business. The passenger in the front seat, later identified as Andre Tyrone Dobin, remained inside the vehicle.
Dobin was alone in the vehicle when the deputy witnessed him holding a brown handgun within view near the side window. The deputy advised other units and then noticed Dobin again hold the gun up, appearing to take selfies of himself posing with the gun. The female returned and the two left on the I-15 south. Deputies followed the pair and conducted a traffic stop on the La Paz and I-15 off-ramp. Dobin and the female were detained. The .45 caliber handgun was located under the seat and was found to be loaded.
When asked, Dobin did admit that he was taking selfies with the handgun. A records check found Dobin to be a convicted felon. He was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
