NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police arrested 3 teens at the G&G Banquet Hall late Saturday night after finding marijuana, crack cocaine, and two loaded handguns, including a stolen firearm, inside their vehicle.

According to the North Charleston Police Department Incident Report, officers were on patrol at the G&G Banquet Hall in the 4500 block of Rivers Drive around 11:21 p.m. when a silver Mazda 3 carrying three teens pulled into the parking lot.

Police said they detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the silver Mazda, prompting a search of the vehicle.

During the search, police found 3.2 grams of crack cocaine, 2.5 grams of marijuana, and 2 loaded pistols, the report states.

Police said the driver's gun, a 9MM pistol, was determined to have been stolen.  The report did not state if the other gun found, a .40 caliber Glock, was registered.

The driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old Carlos Elmore Glenn, was also found to be in possession of over $2000 in cash, according to the report.  He was charged with simple possession of marijuana, possession of a stolen firearm, and driving under suspension.

The passengers, 19-year-old Jamar Hamilton and 18-year-old Devon Reshad Wilson, were charged with simple possession of marijuana.  Hamilton is also charged with possession of crack cocaine.

All three teens were taken to the Charleston County Detention Center.

This is not the first time police have arrested someone at the G&G Banquet Hall.  It was the scene of a shooting that injured two teens back in late April.
