Weapons charges

Gun found in vehicle: A Mayfield Heights man, 64, and a Beachwood man, 36, were charged with third-degree felony weapons under disability following an unspecified traffic stop at the intersection of Munroe Falls Avenue and Stone Street at about 2:35 a.m. April 17. The younger man was also charged with fourth-degree felony carrying a concealed weapon and misdemeanor falsification and resisting arrest and the older man was also charged with misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon and obstructing official business. Police said both men falsely identified the younger man, who was wanted on unspecified arrest warrants. Police said the younger man ran from them, then wrestled with them after they caught him.

Police said weapons charges were due to a loaded handgun found in the vehicle. The weapons under disability charges were due to men not being allowed to possess firearms, the older man because of a prior felony drug trafficking conviction and the younger man because of the warrants, said police.

Both men were taken to Cuyahoga Falls City Jail.
