A Philadelphia man was arrested after he was found to have an unregistered gun hidden in his pants.
Kristofer Cade, 34, of Upland Way, Philadelphia, was arrested Nov. 11 at about 1:15 a.m. following a traffic stop near the corner of Mount Carmel and Maple avenues in which he was a passenger in a silver Chevrolet Tahoe that blew a red light at the corner of Limekiln Pike and Mount Carmel Avenue.
According to police, there was an odor of burnt marijuana emanating from the vehicle; there was also a partially burnt blunt containing suspected marijuana on the vehicle’s center console.
Cade, who had an active arrest warrant out of Philadelphia, was removed from the SUV and searched.
According to police, Cade had a silver and black Taurus PT92AF semi-automatic 9 mm pistol concealed in his “genital region” in his pants. The gun was loaded with 15 rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber.
Cade had no permit to carry and he was on probation — which prohibits him from possessing a gun — at the time of his arrest.
According to court documents, Cade also has several drug-related arrests in Philadelphia dating back to 2003.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 21 at noon in front of District Justice Juanita Price. He is currently in Montgomery County Prison.
