Unserialized Polymer 9mm handgun with extended magazine. A minor was arrested for possession of the firearm and marijuana after being discovered driving a car with the illicit items inside: Fairfield Police Department.

Fairfield police arrested a 17-year-old after discovering marijuana and a ghost gun in the car the teen was driving in. 

Officials said Officer Spencer with the Fairfield Police Department was near a business in the 2900 block of Peabody Road around 8:05 p.m. when he first saw a car that was double-parked. Spencer was about to enter the business when he smelled "a strong odor of burnt marijuana" coming from it.
