Burbank police found a loaded revolver as well as cocaine and methamphetamine for sale after stopping a car with illegally tinted windows, a department spokesman said Wednesday.

Officers stopped Jaime Garcia, 39, of Pacoima around 9:35 p.m. Nov. 25 in the 1900 block of Richard Street.

Police Sgt. Derek Green said a search uncovered a loaded revolver tucked into Garcia’s waistband and multiple small bags of methamphetamine and cocaine in the car.

“Drugs that are packaged separately like this are usually consistent with sales activity,” Green said.


Garcia was taken into custody and has since made bail.
