Grenade Launcher Seized at Florida Traffic Stop

July 17, 2014  | 

It started as a routine traffic stop but ended with Orlando officers seizing a small arsenal of powerful firearms including a 37 mm grenade launcher.

Orlando police stopped Fritz Joseph, of Miami, and Delroy Blake, of Casselberry Wednesday, in a white Audi as the two rolled through a red light and made a right turn without coming to a complete stop, an arrest report said.

When police asked 33-year-old Joseph for his driver's license, he said he didn't have it but 29-year-old Blake handed his over. As the men were questioned, police noticed two rectangular gun boxes in the back seat of the sports car, the report said.

Underneath the boxes police could see the butts of two rifles poking out of a black bag. But when asked if there were weapons in the vehicle, the men said they were not transporting firearms, the report said.

Once police searched the car they found four rifles, seven handguns, two Tec-9s and one grenade launcher. Of the 14 firearms found, three pistols had been reported stolen, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Both Blake and Joseph are being held in the Orange County Jail. Joseph faces charges of weapons possession. Both he and Blake face charges of grand theft for the stolen pistols.
