26-year-old Devin Smith of Irmo was arrested at 2:57 p.m. March 1 during a traffic stop for speeding on Interstate 88 in the Town of Worcester.

Troopers say during the stop, they found a gun in Smith’s glove box and found the weapon was not registered and had a 15-round magazine.  New York State law prohibits magazines carrying more than ten rounds of ammunition.

Authorities say they also found a small amount of marijuana.

Smith is charged with felony weapon possession and misdemeanor counts of unlawful possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device and the violation of unlawful possession of marijuana.

He was ordered to appear in Town of Worcester Court later this month.
