Police in Santa Rosa on Friday arrested a man in connection with several crimes after he was reportedly found asleep in his vehicle with a gun on his lap.

Noah Duncan, 32, of Santa Rosa, was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of drugs while armed, possession of a dangerous drug, possession of a narcotic drug and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Santa Rosa Police Department.
