Four arrested after loaded gun found during traffic stop in Syracuse

Four people were arrested after a loaded firearm was discovered during a traffic stop around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday night.

Syracuse Police say two officers were riding together when they saw a 2002 Dodge Stratus run a stop sign at the intersection of Kellogg Street at Slocum Avenue.

They stopped the vehicle on the 200 block of South Avenue and found that the driver, 43-year-old Isaac Duffy, of Syracuse, had a revoked driverâ??s license. None of the other three passengers had a driverâ??s license, so the passengers were all removed from the vehicle, which was later towed.

While officers conducted inventory search of the vehicle, they found a loaded 22 caliber revolver.

All four people were arrested. The passengers were identified as 17-year-old, 21-year-old Brett Howell, and 18-year-old Lonnie Hoyrd. They are all from Syracuse.

All four were charged with the felonies of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and criminal possession of a firearm.

Duffy was additionally charged with the felony of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, and traffic tickets for aggravated unlicensed operation in the third degree (misdemeanor), unlicensed operation, and disobeying a stop sign.

All four were lodged in the Justice Center and are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Syracuse City Criminal Court.
