(Michigan City, IN) - The crackdown on firearms continues in Michigan City.
35-year old Joseph Vaughn was arrested Monday afternoon. Police said he was the driver of a vehicle that veered over the center line on Franklin St. near Marquette Mall. While being issued a ticket, police said he was found with a firearm. Vaughn was arrested because it’s illegal for someone with a record for serious violent crimes to have a gun, police said.
More focus on illegal gun possession is in response to an increase in shootings and other forms of gun violence in Michigan City over the past couple of years.
