Three men were arrested Tuesday night after police say they found several firearms, including a sawed-off shotgun, in a car they were traveling in.
Gregory Francis Young III, 19, and Jose Tino Pena, 25, both of Davenport, are charged with unauthorized possession of offensive weapons, possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon and trafficking in stolen weapons-first offense.
Seth Scott Williams, 18, of Rock Island, was charged with unauthorized possession of offensive weapons and trafficking in stolen weapons-first offense.
The charges are all Class D felonies and are each punishable by up to five years in prison.
Bond was set Wednesday at $10,000 cash-only for Williams and $15,000 cash-only for Young and Pena.
The three have preliminary hearings scheduled for Aug. 18.
At 9:35 p.m. Tuesday, police initiated a traffic stop in the 500 block of West 13th Street on a red Ford Taurus that ran a stop sign at 14th and Gaines streets.
Police say the three were in possession of a Braztech .20-guage shotgun that had a sawed-off barrel, an offensive weapon, a loaded .380-caliber Lorcin handgun and a loaded Ruger .44 Magnum handgun, according to arrest affidavits filed in support of the criminal complaint.
The serial numbers on the three firearms were scratched off, according to the affidavits.
A records check revealed that Pena has a felony conviction from August 2012 and Young was adjudicated as a delinquent juvenile in June 2015.
Pena, the driver of the vehicle, also was cited for failure to obey a stop sign and yield the right of way.
