Michigan State Police arrest Lansing woman after gun found in traffic stop
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Michigan State Police (MSP) have arrested a Lansing woman finding a concealed gun in her possession during a traffic stop.
On Thursday troopers from the MSP Lansing Post pulled over a vehicle being driven by a woman, 49, who was identified as being from Lansing. In the course of the stop, they say they found a concealed handgun.
“After further investigation, the driver, a 49 year old female from Lansing was arrested and lodged for CCW,” MSP wrote in a public post.
In Michigan, it is legal for a person to carry a gun in public as long as the person is carrying the gun “with lawful intent” and the gun is not concealed. However, carrying a concealed weapon without a license to do so is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $2,500 fine.
The suspect was taken into custody and is awaiting arraignment.
