Florida Traffic Stop Leads to Marijuana Arrest

Jason Rivera, Hiram Maldonado, 24, and Nathanael Desmornes, 24, were arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Office with charges related to possession of a stolen gun and marijuana. The three were pulled over in Rivera’s vehicle after officers noticed that the front passengers were not wearing seat belts. According to Florida’s Click-It-or-Ticket law, police were authorized to stop the vehicle and thus proceed with their investigation. The investigation turned out four Xanax pills with no medication prescription and a stolen 9mm pistol fully loaded. The firearm was stolen from an unlocked vehicle near the campus of the University of Central Florida according to records. Maldonado and Desmornes were identified as members of a street gang, as well.
