SAN FRANCISCO (KRON)—Police arrested two people after officers found a gun inside a bag during a traffic stop in San Francisco on Monday morning.
Police arrived to the 300 block of Bayshore Boulevard after someone reported a suspect brandished a handgun just after midnight.
Officers pulled over a car that matched the description the caller had given them.
The suspects were pulled over at a local Jack-in-the-Box when officers spotted the back of a gun sticking out from a paper bag.
The officers took the loaded .40 caliber gun and then arrested the two suspects later identified as 36-year-old Eric McLin and 27-year-old Erika Bell.
Police got a search warrant to search the suspect’s home on the 1400 block of Newcomb Avenue. When officers searched the home, they found another .40-caliber handgun, ammunition and magazines.
McLin and Bell were charged with suspicion of carrying a loaded gun, possessing a concealed firearm inside a car, and plotting to commit a crime.
