On May 18, 2021 at approximately 10:45 PM, a WRPD Officer initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle for violations of the PA motor vehicle code while in the area of Buttonwood Street and Delaney Traffic Circle. The Officer conducted an investigation and identified a Tahmir A GRIFFITH as a passenger in the vehicle. GRIFFITH was found to have a loaded firearm on his person (concealed in his waistband). A search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. The serial number on the firearm GRIFFITH had in his waistband was found to be shaved down/obliterated. It was also determined that GRIFFITH did not have a permit to carry a concealed firearm and was also found to be a person not to even possess a firearm. GRIFFITH was arrested and transported to the District Justice to answer to the listed charges.
