Cops discovered that a BMW’s occupants were violating more than traffic laws when they pulled over the vehicle in St. Albans last week.

Officers stopped the car, a 2001 BMW X5, around 12:40 a.m. on Oct. 20 after noticing it was driving rather fast at Linden and Farmers boulevards, police said. They also saw that it was missing its front license plate and had a defective taillight.

As the car’s occupants rolled down the windows, the cops said they could smell marijuana coming from the BMW before they even arrived at it. They also said once they did approach the vehicle they could see a marijuana cigarette in the front ashtray and another one on the floor mat.

A .45-cal Taurus handgun and .32-cal Beretta pistol, which was previously reported stolen out of state, were also found in the car, police said.

The vehicle’s four occupants, Gregory Bryant, 35, of Hackensack, N.J.; Wayne Savage, 26, of Hartford, Conn.; Robert Myrie, 44, of Kingston, Jamaica; and Barrington King, 31, of North Lauderdale, Fla., were arrested and each charged with possession of loaded firearms, possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana, authorities said. Bryant was also charged with insufficient taillights, improper license plates and driving without a license.

According to police, Bryan was previously arrested in upstate New York for narcotics possession and is being held on a warrant from Hudson County, N.J. King was previously arrested in Florida and Arizona for theft of a firearm, marijuana possession and sale, and conspiracy.
