MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police officers on Thursday, December 26th were able to arrest three individuals after finding drugs and a gun in a vehicle.

Police say the vehicle was found in the 2600 block of W. Linwal Lane on December 26th — just before 10:30 p.m.

When officers approached the car, the driver, a 24-year-old Milwaukee man and convicted felon fled — but was quickly arrested.

Police say officers observed marijuana in the car, and arrested the other occupants — both 22-year-old men from Milwaukee.

Police say a search of the car turned up cocaine and a 9 mm semi-automatic gun.

Police say all three arrested have previous arrest records.

This case is being referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office for charges.
