From MPD:

“On February 9, 2014, while engaged in proactive traffic enforcement patrols in the 1900 block of 9th Street, NW, a Third District Officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with expired Maryland registration. When the officer approached the vehicle he smelled an odor consistent with marijuana coming from the vehicle. He asked the driver if he had any marijuana in the vehicle and the driver indicated that he did. The driver was removed from the vehicle and secured. The officers then located a black handgun as well as ammunition within reach of the driver’s seat of the vehicle. The driver was then placed under arrest for Possession of Marijuana, Carrying a Pistol and Possession of Unregistered Ammunition. Anyone with additional information regarding this matter is encouraged to call the Metropolitan Police Department on (202) 727-9099.”
