Vallejo police recovered a stolen gun Saturday afternoon after a traffic stop led to a search of the suspect’s home.
According to the Vallejo Times Herald, police stopped a car in the 2200 block of Florida Street at about 3:35 p.m. for a traffic violation. Officers reported that they could smell an odor of marijuana as they approached the vehicle.
