The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said a deputy located a ghost gun in Grand Terrace Sunday night.
Deputy C. Velasco pulled over a car near Barton Road and the 215 Freeway on-ramp at about 9 p.m. and discovered that the driver, 29-year-old Alfred Ross of San Bernardino, had a warrant for his arrest and was also driving without a license, the SBSD said in a news release.
According to jail records, Ross faces a domestic violence charge.
While searching the vehicle, Velasco also found a 9 mm handgun without a serial number, making it untraceable, which is why unserialized firearms are called “ghost guns.”
The gun was found under the passenger seat, and 23-year-old Keshawna Durrah of Grand Terrace was arrested for carrying a loaded firearm, officials said.
Both have been released on bail, and no court appearances have been scheduled.
Anyone with information is urged to call 909-387-3545.
