A Lancaster man is behind bars after police find a stolen gun in his possession. John Vazquez, 23, was pulled over on the 100 block of South Broad Street early this morning. Police discovered a 9mm Ruger semi-automatic pistol that Vazquez did not have a permit to possess. When they ran a check on the gun, they found out it had been reported stolen from Manor Township earlier this month.
Vazquez is charged with Receiving Stolen Property and Firearms not to be Carried Without a Permit. Vazquez was committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $15,000 bail.
