Officers took the man, identified as Adrian Mason, into custody. Investigators found a loaded Glock with a laser mount in a backpack. The backpack, which was found in the vehicle, also contained papers with Mason’s name. Investigators learned that the weapon had been reported stolen from Jackson, Mississippi.

They also learned that Mason, 37, was out on bond on an unlawful use of a weapon charge and that he had a previous felony conviction for delivery of a controlled substance.

Mason, of the 3800 block of W.
