A Bronx man is facing multiple weapons charges after being caught with a loaded handgun during a traffic stop at the Fletcher Avenue overpass on April 1, 2013.

Louis Snyder, 29, allegedly ran a red light before police stopped and searched his Florida-registered 2013 Toyota Corolla around 6:35 p.m.

Officer Ralph Liquori asked to search the car after he noticed an open bottle of Guinness beer in the center console and detected the smell of burnt marijuana.

Upon conducting a search of a gym bag in the trunk, Liquori found a Lorcin .380 caliber gun loaded with hollow-point bullets alongside a box of Silver Bear .380 caliber bullets. Hollow-point bullets expand on impact.

Snyder was charged with unlawful possession of a handgun and hollow-point bullets as well as possession of open alcohol in a motor vehicle and failure to observe a traffic signal.

He was processed and released after posting his $7,500 bail with a 10 percent option.
