Santa Fe police say they arrested a convicted felon on suspicion of drunken driving along Cerrillos Road.

The defendant, Andy Garcia, 37, had heroin and a stolen handgun in his possession when he was arrested Saturday, according to a police complaint filed in Magistrate Court.

Garcia was charged with 15 counts, including drunken driving, drug possession, resisting or evading an officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He was charged last spring with possession of a controlled substance and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. He was being held Monday in the Santa Fe County jail.
