Four men are facing a number of charges following a traffic stop involving a suspicious vehicle over the weekend.
Just after midnight, November 19, 2016, Patrol Officers spotted a Chevrolet Cavalier run through a stop sign on Egbert Avenue. Officers followed the vehicle onto 115th Street and activated their emergency equipment. The suspect vehicle stopped and the driver immediately began to get out, before being ordered to remain inside. The officer approached the vehicle and began to question the occupants when he noticed a handgun next to the driver's seat. The officer, along with others on the scene, ordered all four male occupants of the vehicle to show their hands until they could be removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. A search of the vehicle resulted in officers locating a silver imitation handgun, and two cans of bear spray. The occupants were found to also be in possession of a switchblade knife, Xanax pills, and marihuana. The vehicle was found to be unregistered and the driver does not have a license.
The men, between the ages of 18 and 21 are facing charges including: Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to the Public Peace, Breach of Undertaking, Breach of Probation, Breach of Conditional Sentencing Order, Impersonation, Possession of Marihuana, and Obstructing a Peace Officer.
