Lincoln Police find loaded “ghost gun” in vehicle
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Police arrested an 18-year-old man Friday after finding an untraceable gun in his car.
Lincoln Police pulled over Kobe Phillip-Amerson for driving with a suspended license. Following a probable cause search of the vehicle, officers located a loaded .40 caliber “ghost gun” under the front driver’s seat, as well as drug paraphernalia.
Officers then developed probable cause to conduct a search of Phillip-Amerson’s home near 15th and E Streets. Officers located the following items: 529 grams of marijuana, multiple calibers of ammunition, and gun parts.
Ghost guns are unregulated and untraceable firearms. They do not have serial numbers. They can be assembled by individuals using parts or kits requiring additional minor drilling and/or assembly.
Lincoln Police said 30 percent of all guns recovered by law enforcement in California are unserialized, meaning they can’t be traced.
Officers cited Phillip-Amerson for Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Suspended License. Officers transported Phillip-Amerson to the Saline County Jail for a federal warrant.
