(Ripley County, Ind.) - Guns and drugs were seized by Indiana State Police during a traffic stop for tinted windows on Interstate 74 Monday.
At about 10:00 a.m., troopers had stopped Cory Cable, of Indianapolis, on the highway in Ripley County near the Sunman-Penntown exit because the tinted windows on his 1995 Lexus were too dark.
During the stop, the trooper noticed that Cable was acting suspiciously when asked to step out of the car.
“When Cable exited the vehicle, Trooper Wells noticed a handgun concealed in Cable’s waistline,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Noel Houze.
The trooper removed the weapon and ran a check on it through the computer and discovered it had been stolen during a residential burglary in Hendricks County in May 2010.
A search of Cable’s car turned up methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia, and another gun.
Cable, 41, faces charges including possession of methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm ( Class C felony), receiving stolen property (a Class D felony), and possession of marijuana–less than 30 grams and possession of paraphernalia, both Class A misdemeanors.
