NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — One man was charged early Tuesday morning after police said they found crack rocks in his socks and a loaded gun on him.
According to a warrant, officers were patrolling the 7th Ave. S. and Lafayette St. area when they noticed what they believed to be was a stolen vehicle. Since the VIN number was covered, officers said they approached the vehicle, which is when they saw a crack pipe inside and Oscar Mason, 67, asleep in the driver’s seat.
Police said when Mason opened the door, they noticed a silver revolver under his arm. Officers said they seized the loaded handgun and ran records on both Mason and the weapon to see if it was loaded.
The warrant said a search revealed Mason had a parole violation on his record.
While officials conducted a search, they said they found two large crack rocks in both of his socks.
