Police arrested two men Nov. 4 after finding suspected marijuana and a handgun in a car they were in, the Charles County Sheriff's Office reported.
Zachary Wilbert Swann, 20, of La Plata and Scott Edward Jones, 19, of Silver Spring were charged with handgun possession after an officer saw them leave the Waldorf Motel in the 2100 block of U.S. 301 at 1 p.m. in a suspicious vehicle.
The officer pulled them over and ran a computer check on the car, which showed that its owner's driver's license was suspended.
The officer also noticed suspected marijuana and an open alcoholic beverage in the car at which point he asked Swann, the passenger, and Jones to get out of the car.
A search of the car turned up a plastic smoking device, a scale containing suspected marijuana residue and a handgun, police reported.
Officer V. Warker made the arrests.
