Following a traffic stop early Tuesday morning, the officer found a 16-gauge shotgun and a .22 caliber rifle in the car, both of which were reported stolen in the City of Ithaca.

20 year olds Ruben Tarrats Jr. and Asa Alpert-Eschbach of Ithaca, and 20 year old Nagee Green of Dryden were charged with criminal possession of stolen property. Tarrats was also charged with various traffic violations.

The investigation is continuing and more charges are pending.
