Three arrests were made and an “extraordinary amount of ammunition” seized during a recent traffic stop in Port Arthur, authorities said.

On Friday afternoon, the Port Arthur Police Department released information, saying the city’s Guns and Narcotics Unit made a traffic stop Monday in the 200 block of Gulfway Drive because a motorist failed to signal the intent to turn.

“The driver and owner of the vehicle gave officers consent to search,” a PAPD release said. “During the search, four handguns were located and seized, along with an extraordinary amount of ammunition.”
