SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A traffic stop in San Antonio has yielded a gun stolen from a federal agent’s vehicle and about $40,000 worth of methamphetamine.

San Antonio police say formal charges are pending against the driver who was detained Tuesday.

Sgt. Javier Salazar says the firearm was stolen several months ago during a vehicle burglary. Further details on the agent weren’t immediately released.

Police say the 28-year-old suspect had the gun on the passenger’s seat when he was followed after a traffic violation, arrived at a residence and was detained. Investigators also seized cash - about $7,000.

Authorities say the suspect will face charges including parole violation, being a felon in possession of a firearm and drug charges. His name and information on his criminal record weren’t immediately available.
