A pair of Detroit residents are facing charges after a U.S. 20 traffic stop in the village Friday.
Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Shannon Lyons conducted the traffic stop at 12:19 p.m.
"Two individuals, Traevon L. Ginns, 22, and Victoria Perkins, 21, were traveling to Mansfield," Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.
The initial traffic stop was for failure to display license registration.
"I assisted Deputy Lyons at the scene with my K-9," Querin said.
"Inside the vehicle, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia was found," Querin said.
Querin said deputies also found a 9-mm high-point handgun.
"We're still in the process of determining if the gun was stolen or not," Querin said.
Ginns was arrested on warrants from the Mansfield and Ontario police departments.
Perkins was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as was Ginns.
"Ginns said he received the gun on the streets of Mansfield," Querin said.
Ginns was transported to the Richland County Jail.
"I'd like to commend Deputy Lyons on being proactive out there," Querin said.
The Monroeville police assisted at the scene.
