Philly man nabbed on gun, drug charges in Wilm.

A Philadelphia man is arrested after a routine traffic stop.

City cops say Lonnie Gambrell was nabbed on the 2500 block of North Market Street in Wilmington early this morning after he failed to use a turn signal.

Police say they smelled marijuana and searched the car. That's where they found a handgun, several hundred dollars in cash, and more than a gram of crack cocaine.

Gambrell is a convicted drug offender, prohibited from possessing a gun. He's behind bars on $80,000 at Howard Young prison.
