SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — On Dec. 23, around 3 p.m., Onondaga County Sheriff’s deputies stopped a 2006 Honda Civic with three teenage males inside for not stopping at a red traffic signal.
Deputies then saw suspicious movement in the car, the Sheriff’s Office said. All three teens were taken out of the car, and the deputies discovered none had valid driver’s licenses.
The car was searched before being towed, and the deputies found a 9mm ghost gun without serial numbers. The gun was loaded with one round in the chamber and had an additional 10 rounds in an attached 31-round magazine, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
