WYANDOTTE — A 30-year-old Detroit man was arrested the night of Aug. 4 following a traffic stop for an expired license plate and no vehicle insurance, which resulted in his arrest for two counts of carrying concealed weapons, each five-year felonies, and a misdemeanor firearm possession in a motor vehicle charge.
When the police officer initiated a traffic stop, the man failed to stop for several blocks, doing what is referred to as “slow rolling,” which gives them time to attempt to hide contraband.
When the man pulled over in Ecorse, on Jefferson Avenue near Southfield Road, the police officer saw a loose bullet inside the vehicle and detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana.
The vehicle was searched, revealing a fully-loaded Glock handgun with 100 rounds of ammunition loaded in extended magazines, a loaded Smith and Wesson handgun with extra magazines, a loaded long rifle and a loaded Draco AK pistol.
The man was wearing a bulletproof vest, and had a 20-round magazine loaded with blue-tip, armor-piercing “cop killer” bullets.
