A routine traffic stop ended Tuesday with an arrest and confiscation of a loaded firearm and 6.2 grams of methamphetamine, an arrest affidavit reads.

About 5 p.m., a Shawnee Police officer stopped a vehicle that did not have a working brake light.

The vehicle didn't stop immediately, but instead pulled into a residence at 1205 E. Wallace, where the officer reported the driver was rapidly moving around in the vehicle, the arrest affidavit states.

The driver, identified as Jesse Wayne Keys, told the officer that he was taking his passenger to the hospital because she had MRSA and wasn't feeling well.

When asked, the passenger told the officer that she did not need an ambulance, the arrest affidavit reads.

Dispatch advised that Keys did not have a valid driver's license, and due to inconsistencies with Keys' travel plans, the arrest affidavit reads, the officer asked Keys if there was anything illegal in the car. The arrest affidavit states that Keys said he didn't know if there was or not.

While conducting a search under the driver seat, the officer discovered an open camouflage gun case with a loaded .22 caliber revolver inside, the arrest affidavit reads.

Also inside the case was a Snus container with 14 ziploc bags, 12 of which contained a white crystal-like substance that the officer said — through training and experience — was believed to be methamphetamine.

Keys was arrested and taken to Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center and booked on complaints of possession of a firearm while committing a felony; possession of a firearm AFCF; possession of CDS (meth) with intent to distribute; and no driver's license.

The alleged drugs were sent to OSBI for lab anal ysis and the firearm, with 46 rounds of ammo and the gun case were logged into evidence, as well.

Formal charges have not been filed.

The vehicle was impounded and the passenger was released at the scene.
