Two men are arrested after a traffic stop on Saturday evening.

Wilmington Police say, they stopped Lekeisha Smith who was driving a silver Nissan Maxima with a suspended registration, in the 500 block of West 9th Street.

Police conducted a traffic stop to find that passenger Raheim Hunter had an active warrant for violating probation out of Pennsylvania.

After police ordered all occupants to exit the vehicle, the officers conducted a safety pat to a third passenger and located a .38-caliber revolver in Akeem Crooper's waistband. Cropper is prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a prior felony.

Hunter and Cropper were both committed to Howard Young Correctional Institution.
