Posted: Updated:

Michigan State Police troopers pulled over a car that they say failed to signal as it made a turn in the city of Saginaw.

The traffic stop happened around 2:15 a.m. Thursday on River Road near Hess.  As troopers activated the emergency lights to pull the vehicle over, troopers said the passenger in vehicle appeared to be making "furtive movements."

Authorities said after contact was made with the driver of the vehicle, troopers learned that the driver had a suspended driver's license. Troopers also smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle. 

After a search of the vehicle was conducted, troopers said two handguns and marijuana were found. 

The driver of the vehicle, a 24-year-old man from Saginaw, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, driving while license suspended and possession of marijuana.  The front seat passenger, a 23-year-old woman from Saginaw, was also arrested for carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana possession.  

A back seat passenger was released at the scene. No further information was issued by police.
