PARAMUS, NJ — Paramus Police arrested two men from out of state after a traffic stop last Thursday on weapons charges, according to a news release.

A Paramus officer stopped a driver for swerving around 1:30 a.m. on March 10. The driver was traveling on Route 17 South from Linwood Avenue, Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said.

The officer noticed the car had "extremely over-tinted windows," Ehrenberg said.

This officer and two others approached the car. The two men inside gave police permission to search it. Neither occupant had a driver's license, the news release said.

Police found a dissembled Glock 9mm handgun without a serial number. They also found 36 hollow-point bullets, and a 15-round magazine.
