Officers were on patrol in the area of Fottler Rd due to a recent homicide that occurred. While in the area their attention was drawn to a heavily tinted vehicle, a query of the vehicle revealed it to have an expired registration as well.

The firearm was later determined to be a 9mm P80 Ghost Gun loaded with 9 rounds in the magazine, 1 round in the chamber, the officers also located an additional 99 live 9mm rounds in the truck of the vehicle.
