State Police at Homer arrested a Pennsylvania man Tuesday (April 2) morning, after a stop for speeding eventually led to the discovery of a loaded weapon.
Troopers say they pulled over 29-year-old Wesley Lee and his passenger, 33-year-old Isaiah Edgecomb of Rockaway Beach, NY just before 10:30 Monday morning on Route 81 in Marathon.
They say the car smelled like marijuana, which prompted a search that ultimately led to the discovery of a loaded handgun in the vehicle and a small amount of marijuana.
Lee was also charged with an open container.
He was arrested and later arraigned in the town of Cortlandville where he was remanded to jail on no bail and was set to appear yesterday.
Edgecombe was not arrested but he was issued an appearance ticket to Marathon Town Court on April 10.
