Gun defaced, teen jailed, police say

A 17-year-old was arrested and booked as an adult after a Pulaski County sheriff's deputy found drugs and a gun with the serial number defaced during a traffic stop, according to an arrest report.

A deputy stopped Ramari Lock of Sherwood about 2 a.m. Friday for not using his turn signal on Arkansas 161 in North Little Rock, the report said.

Lock said he was 18, but that age did not match the driver's license he provided, according to police.

Eventually, authorities determined that he was 17, and a search of the vehicle turned up a backpack with what was thought to be marijuana and a handgun that had been defaced, according to the report.

Lock faces two felony firearm charges and two misdemeanor charges of drug possession and obstructing government operations.
