On February 2, 2021, the Northeast Search Team officers conducted a traffic stop on an individual for running a stop sign in the 6500 block of Eastridge Road (5 Points). While conducting an interview of the driver during the traffic stop, officers noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from his vehicle and observed a handgun with an attached 50 round drum magazine in plain view. As a result, the driver was then taken into custody. A search of the vehicle resulted in officers locating 844.1 grams of marijuana, a Glock 22 with a 50 round magazine, and a scale. Additionally during the course of the investigation officers learned that the arrestee also had six outstanding warrants out of the city of Dallas. This incident is documented on case # 020021-2021.
Thank you Northeast Search Team officers for keeping Dallas Safe.
