By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - The Paducah Police Department arrested two people after a routine traffic stop.

Police arrested 34-year-old Jakyron Rashad Burnside of Union City, TN for reportedly having no brake lights, operating on a suspended or revoked license, possession of marijuana, driving under the influence (second offense) and having an open alcoholic beverage container in his vehicle. 

18-year-old Chrishonna Burns of Paducah was arrested on charges of receiving stolen property (firearm) and possession of marijuana. 

Police stopped a vehicle for having no taillights. They said there were open bottles of alcohol in the vehicle and it was apparent the driver, Burndside, had been drinking. He admitted to drinking and having smoked marijuana earlier in the evening. He was arrested and the officer found a small bag of marijuana in his pocket. 

In a search, officers reportedly found a handgun in a purse belonging to the passenger, Chrishonna Burns. She told officers that the handgun was hers, but a computer check revealed it was reported stolen last November. 

Burns was arrested, and admitted to officers she had a marijuana blunt hidden in her pants. 

Burnside and Burns were booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
