DESTIN — The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office street crimes unit arrested a convicted felon during a traffic stop Friday for the possession of guns, in addition to heroin and methamphetamine.

Matthew Herring, 34, of Sandalwood Drive in Destin, was spotted on Beal Parkway around 1 a.m. driving a motorcycle with no tag lights or a visible license tag, according to a press release from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office.

Inside Herring’s motorcycle jacket deputies found a .38 revolver and .22 Derringer. Inside his backpack was heroin, methamphetamine, a scale, unused jewelers baggies and an unopened pack said to contain a Suboxone, a drug in the same category as heroin and meth.
