Police spokesman Dave Northway said an officer stopped two Tallahassee men late Saturday night for speeding. After saying he smelled marijuana, the patrol officer searched the car, allegedly finding a glass pipe and a stolen handgun. Northway said a later search of the apartment where the men lived yielded more guns, laptop computers and 78 grams of pot.

“All of these items were all stolen from other cars; a couple of them were stolen from houses," he said. "So, a simple traffic infraction, which is speeding in this case, leads to a very large arrest.”

The men may face several charges related to possessing illegal drugs and stolen property.
