A traffic stop for driving under suspension turned up a stolen gun, Lincoln police say.
Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said officers patrolling the area near Touzalin Avenue and Fremont Street at about 1:20 a.m. Friday saw 32-year-old Lars Craig of Lincoln driving a Honda Odyssey and learned his license was suspended.
Police stopped him in the 6000 block of Havelock Avenue.
Bonkiewicz said because Craig had a prior driving under suspension, officers towed his minivan, first doing an inventory that turned up 32.6 grams of marijuana and a Rock Island Armor M1911 .45 handgun.
He said officers discovered that the firearm had been stolen in Beatrice.
Police arrested Craig on suspicion of driving under suspension, possession of a stolen firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana.
