BERLIN, Md. - Maryland State Police say troopers arrested three men after a citizen's call led to a  DUI stop.

On Oct. 8, MSP received a call for a possible intoxicated driver traveling north on Route 113 approaching Berlin. Police said the car was reportedly "all over the roadway," unable to maintain a consistent speed.

Troopers pulled over the 2003 Nissan Altima with Virginia registration near Branch Street. As police made the traffic stop, they said they observed the vehicle's occupants making furtive movements inside the car.

The occupants were identified as Wesly Pujols Vargas (the driver), Qualil Clint Rivera and Deontae Demetrius Rogers.

Police said a strong odor of burnt marijuana was coming from the vehicle, so troopers performed a probable cause search.

Troopers said they found several partially smoked marijuana cigarettes, unsmoked marijuana, as well as two hand guns and two extended magazines.

According to policethe first weapon was a Glock Model 23, .40 caliber, that was next to a 22-round magazine loaded with 20 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. The second weapon was a Ruger LCP, .380 caliber, with a serial number that appeared to be scratched off, according to police. They said troopers also found an extended magazine for the Ruger loaded with 15 rounds of .380 ammunition. Police said they also found a box of .380 caliber ammunition behind the driver's side seat.

Upon further review, police found the Glock Model 23 had been reported stolen to the Portsmouth Police Department. Police said as for the Ruger, due to the damage to the serial number, the owner was not immediately able to be identified.

All three men were arrested and taken to the District Court Commissioner's Office where they were ordered held on $25,000 bond.

The incident remains under investigation.
