Drugs, Loaded Gun Found During Traffic Stop

LINCOLN -- Traces of marijuana, about point-nine grams of cocaine and a loaded revolver were found during a traffic stop early Monday morning at 10th and Lincoln Mall.  An officer could smell pot coming from the car and told 21-year-old Christopher Johnson to step out.  Johnson tried to break free, but was taken into custody.  More drugs were found on Johnson once he was taken to jail.  Johnson allegedly had 11 hydrocodone pills and six rocks of crack cocaine in his pocket.  Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood says Johnson faces several charges, including two counts of possession and carrying a concealed weapon.
