A man was charged with felony gun possession after Northeast District police found a loaded Glock semiautomatic handgun in his vehicle after a chase about 5 a.m. Saturday.
Stephen M. Green, 25, of Doat Street, was pulled over at Jefferson Avenue and West Ferry Street when police decided a pair of boxing gloves hanging from his rear-view mirror was obstructing his view. After officers discovered the registration for Green's vehicle was expired, he allegedly drove off and led police on a chase that ended at Green's home.
As Green ran from the vehicle into the backyard, he reportedly tossed away a red book bag, which contained an empty ammunition magazine and some alleged marijuana. The gun was found on the floor in the rear of the vehicle.
