On 11/29/2017, at approximately 5:10 PM, The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of Key Pkwy and Stonegate Dr. During the course of the traffic stop officers received consent to search the vehicle and the driver’s person.

Additionally, a loaded .45 caliber handgun was also found inside of the vehicle. After running a check on the handgun it was discovered that it had been stolen.
