Deputies arrested two people on weapons and drug charges during a traffic stop in Lemon Grove Friday. 

Just before 2:30 p.m., San Diego County Sheriff’s Department deputies, from the Lemon Grove Substation, stopped a car with no license plates.

While searching the vehicle, in the 8000 block of Broadway, the authorities found two loaded 9mm handguns that they determined to be unserialized “ghost guns.” 

Deputies also took methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and 9mm ammunition from the car.

The driver and passenger, residents of San Diego and Lemon Grove, were arrested on suspicion of illegal firearms possession and various drug charges. Deputies booked them into San Diego Central Jail.
