BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 34-year-old man was arrested and is being held without bail after police reportedly found a “large amount” of drugs in his vehicle during a traffic stop Sunday morning.

A Maryland Transportation Authority officer stopped Orlando Rogers for speeding on southbound Interstate 95 in Baltimore just before 2:30 a.m.

When officers searched the car, they reportedly found a large amount of suspected cocaine and heroin as well as a loaded handgun. Rogers, a convicted felon, was not allowed to own or possess a gun.

Rogers allegedly tried to run when officers attempted to put him in handcuffs; he was arrested after a struggle.

He is charged with illegal possession of ammunition, possession of a weapon while engaged in drug trafficking, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, illegally removing a serial number from a firearm, drug possession and resisting arrest.

    See how good the gun laws work. The only one’s that have the guns are the criminals. Vote out of office any and all Democrats next election. Their STUPID gun laws makes us targets for the criminals.

    1. Hear Hear. And threaten to make a criminal out of previously law biding citizens. The libs have lost their minds. I mean look at baltimore for crying out loud, no amount of gun laws, restrictions etc, will stop the killings there. Remember this from history – When guns are outlawed, only outlaws have them.
