SEEKONK, Mass. (WPRI) — Police arrested a Providence man early Wednesday after officers found a loaded firearm and drugs in his car during a traffic stop.
Roland Morgan III, 37, was arrested in Seekonk after police said officers found a loaded firearm with additional ammunition, a compound bow and arrow with metal tipped arrows, body armor, a pistol holder, speed loaders and an air rifle inside his vehicle.
