KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A pair of local men were arrested Saturday morning on firearms and drug charges.

At 9 a.m. Saturday, Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officer Tim Millard conducted a traffic stop in the 500 block of West North Street for a moving violation. The driver and front seat passenger quickly exited the vehicle but were detained.

A K-9 unit searched the vehicle, resulting in a Ruger .22 revolver being found underneath the driver’s seat. A search of the front seat passenger also resulted in a delivery amount of crack cocaine and several hundred dollars being seized.

Both of the vehicle’s occupants were men in their 30s from Kalamazoo.

The driver was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm, attempted resisting and obstructing arrest, and driving on a suspended license. He was free on a circuit court bond for a previous gun case.

The front seat passenger was arrested for possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine and attempted resisting and obstructing arrest.

Anyone with any information about this incident is being asked to contact Kalamazoo Public Safety at (269) 337-8994 or Silent Observer at (269) 343-2100.
