State police arrested a New Hampshire man on traffic and gun charges after a traffic stop Saturday.
Police say a trooper was conducting speed enforcement on Interstate 395 in Thompson when he picked up on a vehicle driving 92 miles per hour. The trooper stopped the vehicle and when he approached he noticed a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun and two loaded magazines in plain view on the front passenger seat.
The driver, identified as Cory Lounsbrough, 25 of Laconia, New Hampshire, did not have a permit for the handgun. The gun and ammunition were seized and Lounsbrough was arrested without incident.
Lounsbrough was charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle and weapons in a motor vehicle. He was held on a $2,500 bond and expected to appear in Danielson Superior Court on July 21.
