A search of the vehicle yielded marijuana, cocaine, as well as a loaded and stolen Glock 22 handgun. The stolen handgun had a round loaded in the chamber and a 22 round high capacity magazine. The driver and passenger were both arrested and transported to a local Jail. A great proactive stop by Officer Geldermann!
