VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Volusia County deputies recovered guns and cash from two teens during a traffic stop in DeLand on Sunday.
Deputies said they pulled over a rental car on Sunday, which led to the discovery.
According to deputies, during the traffic stop, 17-year-old Damarion Mims had a KG Model K15 AR pistol concealed under his jacket. Mims also had a 60-round rifle magazine, loaded with 30 rounds of 5.56mm ammunition, in his pants.
