One man has been arrested after officers found a gun inside a car parked in Old Town over the weekend.
Officers on special assignment noticed two males acting suspicious around 11:30 p.m. Friday. Officials say the men parked their car, then tried to blend in with the crowd.
Police found the car and confiscated a black, semi-automatic handgun laying on the floorboard. Authorities located the men who left the car, and arrested one of the suspects for a felon in possession of a handgun.
Extra police officers patrolled the area Friday and Saturday nights after a spike in recent crime. Authorities have investigated four shootings in four consecutive weekends.
