MDTA POLICE RECOVER STOLEN GUN

DURING TRAFFIC STOP IN BALTIMORE

 

BALTIMORE, MD - On Tuesday, Mar. 6, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police arrested a Baltimore man after a probable-cause search led officers to find a loaded handgun that was reported stolen in West Virginia.

An MDTA Police officer stopped a 2003 Honda Accord at Hanover St. and McComas Street in Baltimore for the operator not being restrained by a seat belt and for an equipment violation. As the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver and the passenger switched seats. During a subsequent probable-cause search of the vehicle, officers located the stolen handgun. The passenger in the vehicle, 18-year-old Andres Galvan Flores from Baltimore, claimed possession of the handgun.

The MDTA Police charged Mr. Flores with knowingly transporting a firearm in a vehicle while traveling on a public road, possessing a stolen firearm, being under the age of 21 and possessing a firearm and transporting a firearm on their person.

After processing, officers transported Mr. Flores to the Central Booking Intake Facility in Baltimore City.
