DETROIT – Michigan State Police troopers found a loaded pistol hidden under a pile of clothes in a vehicle during a traffic stop Tuesday on the Davison Freeway.
Police said the driver, a 22-year-old Pontiac man, did not have a concealed pistol license. Michigan law states that guns can only be transported in vehicles by non-CPL holders if the weapon is unloaded and in a case in the trunk or in an area not readily accessible to passengers if the vehicle does not have a trunk.
The vehicle, which was unregistered, was stopped for multiple traffic violations, police said.
The driver was taken into custody without incident.
