(KAIR)--A stolen firearm and drugs were allegedly discovered in a Jackson County traffic stop, leading to the arrest of both Topeka men traveling in the Chevrolet Malibu.

Arrested was the driver, 37-year-old Shawn Brown, and his 20-year-old passenger, Ayden Prettyman, following the Thursday morning traffic stop, near 166th and U.S. Highway 75.

According to a release from Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, the deputy took the passenger, identified as Prettyman, into custody during the 9 A.M. stop, believing that Prettyman was reaching for a firearm. That weapon was then found to have been reported as stolen.

Brown faces charges for possession of stolen property, while Prettyman was arrested for possession of stolen property, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a hallucinogenic drug, and drug paraphernalia.

Following their arrests, the pair was booked into the Jackson County Jail.
