Police said that at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, officers stopped a car in the area of 65th Street and Coastal Highway after receiving a tip that the driver, 43-year-old Scot Ronald Randolf, was very intoxicated. In addition to receiving information describing Randolf's vehicle, police said officers were also told that Randolf possibly had three firearms in his car.

During the traffic stop, police said they recovered two handguns, a shotgun and ammunition from the interior passenger compartment of the car. At the time of the stop, the weapons were unloaded. Also located in the car was drug paraphernalia with suspected marijuana residue, according to investigators.

Randolf was arrested and charged with possession of handgun in a vehicle, possession of a handgun on person, possession of a controlled dangerous substance- marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
