Veteran highway patrolman Gerald Roland Harris, 44, was arrested on charges resulting from a search of his house that turned up explosive devices, assault weapons and methadone.
Harris turned himself into the Shasta County jail after an arrest warrant was issued charging him with 11 felony counts of possessing assault weapons, one felony count of possession of methadone, one misdemeanor count of embezzlement and one felony count for possession of explosives.
There were also thousands of driver licenses found that Harris allegedly took from drivers he has pulled over. The theft of the driver licenses will likely result in embezzlement charges.
Officers also found 10 rifles and a hand gun that violated the state assault weapons ban.
Harris has been a CHP officer for 21 years and has been assigned to the Redding CHP office since 2003.
Bail was set at $100,000.
If convicted of all charges, Harris faces up to nine years in county jail.
