A Toledo man who was arrested on a warrant from another agency also faces charges in Wood County for carrying a concealed weapon.
A Bowling Green police officer was on patrol Saturday at 12:37 a.m. in the 200 block of East Court Street and ran a license plate on a parked 2022 Dodge Charger.
The vehicle drew the officer’s attention as earlier in the evening, scanner traffic indicated a pursuit on I-75 of a black Dodge Charger. That pursuit was terminated and a plate number was not obtained.
The check of the license plate showed the owner, Terrysaun Minter, 21, had an active warrant through Lucas County.
The officer circled the block and upon return, observed the taillights to be on and the vehicle occupied, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
The officer approached the passenger side of the vehicle and confirmed Minter’s identity. For his safety, the officer asked if there were any firearms in the vehicle and Minter replied no, according to the report.
The officer asked Minter again and he said he did not have anything on him, according to the report.
When additional units arrived, Minter was placed into custody on the warrant.
Officers conducted an inventory of the vehicle and located a loaded Glock 19 9 mm handgun in the center console bin, according to the report. The handgun had one round in the chamber and five rounds in the magazine, according to the report.
Minter was arrested for the warrant as well as carrying a concealed weapon and falsification for making false statements about possessing a weapon.
He was taken to jail and discharged Monday after posting bond.
