“A man has been arrested after he was pulled over and caught with an assault rifle [actually a pistol] that was loaded with a drum magazine in his backseat,” mlive.com reports. And that’s about all we know. Save this . . .
Michigan State Police Sgt. Jeff Juneac said the MSP Hometown Security Team and MSP Fugitive Team were working together on Flint’s south side on an unrelated case on Friday, May 20.
Troopers in the area saw a man carrying what appeared to be a weapon to a vehicle. HST members stopped the vehicle in the 600 block of Lincoln Street around 1:30 p.m., according to Juneac. The traffic stop resulted in the seizure of a 7.62×39 assault rifle that was fully loaded with a drum magazine and had one round in the chamber from the backseat of the vehicle.
The man in his 20s was arrested at the scene, according to Juneac. A woman in the vehicle was released pending further investigation.
No word on whether or not the drum guy was a “bad guy” (i.e. a prohibited person). Whether he was or wasn’t, Michigan doesn’t have magazine capacity laws. Just sayin’ . . .
