If it seems like you hear this story a lot, you’re not wrong – but local police have taken more drugs and another gun off the Orlando streets. Before the holidays this month, the Orlando Police Department reported that North Patrol Officers stopped a vehicle near West Colonial Drive and Fairvilla Road.
A probable cause search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a hidden firearm inside a console panel, which was possessed by a convicted felon. Illegal drugs were also found. Here’s what police found:
