The officer engaged in a conversation with him until backup arrived. The officer then spoke to the passenger, asked him to step out of the vehicle, and removed the firearm from his person for the duration of the stop for safety. He told the police that he had no other firearm, and police placed Montez into custody.
Police found marijuana in his sock and a digital scale in his pocket. Inside the vehicle, they found a Glock 43 within arms reach of Montez’s driver’s seat. The passenger stated that the weapon was also his but could not tell the officers what model or caliber of the weapon. He told police that he bought his weapon from a gun store, but he bought the Glock 43 from a friend, which police advised could mean the weapon was stolen.
