Three arrested, 2 handguns seized
Kalamazoo, MI: On July 12th, 2018 at about 10:00P.M. Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officers were conducting surveillance in the 1400 block of Fox Ridge when they became aware of subjects brandishing handguns. The subjects entered a vehicle and began leaving the complex when officers made contact with them. After the four occupants of the vehicle were detained, a handgun was located at the feet of one of the occupants with a second loaded handgun located on their person. One firearm had reported as a stolen handgun, with the second gun being unregistered. As a result of this investigation, a 19 year old Kalamazoo man and a 17 year old Kalamazoo man were both arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. In addition, a 20 year old Kalamazoo man was arrested on unrelated charges. This case is still under investigation and additional charges will be requested.
