 A Florida trucker who was transporting a load of tobacco to the Tuscorara Indian Reservation was stopped on Shawnee Road on Wednesday and his passenger was found to be carrying a loaded gun and 43 rounds of ammunition.

Although the man had a permit for the gun in Florida, he was arrested for not having a concealed weapon permit for New York State.

Guy A. Gangi, Jr., 48, of Hollywood, Fla., was a passenger in a truck driving on Shawnee when a Niagara County Sheriff's patrol saw the driver repeatedly cross over a fog line. While conducting a search of the vehicle, police asked if there were any firearms on board, to which he replied, according to a police report, "Oh yes, I have my Glock right there."
