SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — A sheriff’s office in Maryland says a traffic stop has led to the arrest of a convicted felon who was carrying a loaded gun and crack cocaine.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports 25-year-old Shaheed Morris was arrested Tuesday when a Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled him over for a traffic violation. The violation’s nature is unclear.

A sheriff’s office statement says the deputy smelled marijuana, searched the car and uncovered five bags of crack cocaine and a loaded .22 revolver. It says the gun had one spent round in the cylinder. Morris is prohibited from possessing regulated firearms because of a previous manslaughter conviction.

He was taken into custody on charges including possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

    First, Your video is not playing at all. I have tried for 10 min. and it wont start. Anyway, I am very grateful that there is one (1) less criminal and drug dealer off our streets. Thank you to the Sheriff’s department.
