SIOUX CITY | A 27-year-old man was arrested after police allegedly found meth and a sawed-off shotgun on him Monday. 

Court documents say Aaron Privett, of Sioux City, was contacted around 11:30 p.m. in the 700 block of 8th Street because he had an outstanding warrant for a probation violation.

Police say they found a Mossberg .20 gauge shotgun with a sawed-off barrel in a backpack he was carrying. A bag containing approximately 0.2 grams of methamphetamine was in his pants pocket, the documents said. In a post-Miranda interview, Privett claimed the meth belonged to him.

He was booked into the Woodbury County Jail on a $30,000 bond and faces felony charges of a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of drugs.
