(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County Police arrested two alleged handgun violators, including a fugitive.
Kameron Martin, 29, of South Bend, was pulled over Monday after passing a police vehicle above the speed limit on U.S. 20 near 250 East. Martin was wanted by authorities in Elkhart County.
Upon searching his vehicle, a 9-millimeter pistol was also recovered. Because of a prior felony conviction, it is illegal for him to have possession of a firearm.
Early Tuesday, Chad Barron, 33, of Kingsbury, was wanted in Marshall County during a traffic stop on U.S. 421 in the Westville area. Barron did not have a permit to carry the 9-millimeter pistol recovered from his vehicle. Both suspects were being held in the La Porte County Jail without bond.
