BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE – Melbourne police arrested Christopher Luke Hosang, 29, after an officer stopped his vehicle for failing to stop at a stop sign May 22.
“As Officer Blazewicz was speaking with him she made him aware that she could smell marijuana, and Hosang admitted to smoking marijuana,” said Melbourne police spokesperson Christina Brainard in a release.
“When she asked him if he had any drugs or weapons in the car, he told her he didn’t and gave her consent to search this vehicle.”
According to Brainard, during the search officers discovered a 12-gauge shotgun on the backseat and a handgun with a loaded magazine in the console between the driver and passenger seat.
