Police officers arrested man for improper handling of firearm

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A motorist allegedly found with a loaded handgun laying on the passenger seat of his vehicle during a traffic stop on Southgate Parkway by the Cambridge Police late Tuesday night has been charged.


Twenty-nine-year-old Richard Uran of Cambridge was charged with a felony-four count of improper handing of a firearm in a motor vehicle in Cambridge Municipal Court on Wednesday. Uran was also cited by police for no license plate light, no operator's license and driving while under FRA/non-compliance suspension following the traffic stop.

According to reports, Patrolman William Morris conducted a traffic stop at around 11:20 p.m. on a vehicle driven by Uran after he was observed traveling on Southgate Parkway without a license plate light. Morris approached the vehicle and observed the loaded handgun lying on the seat next to Uran. The officer then held the suspect at gunpoint until back-up arrived on scene and Uran was taken into custody without further incident. The gun was reportedly found to be loaded with a full magazine and a round in the chamber.

Uran advised Police he did not possess a concealed carry license.
