Sarasota- Two men are facing felony charges after Sarasota Police say they found guns and marijuana in their truck during a traffic stop.
Eunique Arnold, 21, and Johnny Belvin, 25, from Sarasota were arrested last Thursday, after Sarasota Police say they conducted a traffic stop on a gray Ford F-150 with dark tinted windows driving on Dixie from 21 St. E.
An officer said when they stopped the truck, the driver quickly pulled into the driveway around the 1800 block of 24th St.
Police say they walked toward the truck and asked the driver to roll down all four windows because of the tint. Police say they saw five people inside the truck and a man who was the front right passenger. The man opened his door and threw out a crystal like substance.
One officer walked toward the passenger side, smelled marijuana, then began to remove everyone from the vehicle. Police say after everyone was in handcuffs, Belvin was searched and two cell phones were taken from him. Police say after they interviewed everyone, they found a Glock model 27 .40 caliber in plain sight and two bags of marijuana containing 143.2 grams (in-bag weight) under Belvin’s seat.
Police say they also found 303.0 grams of marijuana in Arnold’s back pack and two other firearms.
