Weapons charges

CAMPBELL

A 21-year-old Youngstown man faces charges of carrying concealed weapons and illegal possession of weapons — a fourth-degree felony and a third-degree felony, respectively — after police found a loaded handgun in his car during a traffic stop Friday night.

Jermaine William Tarver of Kendis Circle also was cited for failing to have a rear license-plate light. Police stopped Tarver on McCartney Road shortly before 9 p.m. During the traffic stop, an officer noticed what appeared to be marijuana residue on the floor of the car, along with a small, torn plastic bag. A search of the car then produced the loaded .38-caliber, revolver-style handgun.

Tarver was placed under arrest, and police later discovered that he had a history of felony charges, including kidnapping and carrying a concealed weapon.

As a convicted felon, he is prohibited from having a weapon.
