Youngstown police find handgun, arrest man


Police say they found a loaded Smith & Wesson handgun during a traffic stop about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday at Wilson and Himrod avenues on the East Side.

Reports said David Tribble, 34, of Youngstown, was pulled over for having excessive window tint. A police dog was brought in to sniff the area around the car and detected the odor of a gun, reports said.

The gun was found in a holster in the car and a records check revealed it had been stolen in the city in 2012.

Tribble was taken to the Mahoning County jail on charges of receiving stolen property and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle.
