NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Two people, including a convicted felon, are facing multiple charges after a traffic stop in New Haven.

According to police, on Feb. 6 around 10:20 p.m., units conducted a traffic stop after viewing a vehicle with tinted windows and no front plate.

Officials say they smelled burnt marijuana and asked the driver, Dylon Hubson, if he had smoked any. Hubson then handed the officer a bag of marijuana, saying that was all that he had on him.

Authorities say a further investigation revealed that Hubson was operating an unregistered vehicle without a license.

According to police, the vehicle’s passenger,  Edwin Moreno, who is a convicted felon on parole, was “acting nervous.” A pat down allegedly led to the discovery of a stolen pistol in his possession.

Hubson has been charged with several crimes, including possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. Moreno was also charged with criminal possession of a pistol and possession of a stolen firearm, among other charges.
