A woman is behind bars on gun charges, and a man arrested on drug and traffic counts, after a Wilmington traffic stop.

City police say officers stopped a Chevy Impala near the 300 block of North Bancroft Parkway shortly before 11 Saturday night because the car's license plate had expired.

The driver, Kennan Golden, didn't have a license, registration or insurance, but was carrying more than 2 and a half grams of pot.

The cops told Golden's passenger, Tamiya Gregory, to get out of the car, and when she took her cell phone out of her pocket, a 22-caliber handgun fell out.

Gregory's being held at the Baylor Women's Prison, charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a firearm within 10 years of a prior conviction.

Golden's out of bail.
