A traffic stop in Myrtle Beach lead to arrests on Saturday.

Myrtle Beach police took Kazeem Oyeneyin, 27, and Marvin Leach, 28, into custody Saturday morning at 7:50 in connection to an alleged weapon violation.

According to the police report, an officer pulled over a Bentley headed northbound on Hwy 17 Bypass near 62nd Avenue North because the license plate was not visible.

As the officer approached he did notice a North Carolina dealer tag in the window.

After explaining to Oyeneyin, why he was pulled over, Oyeneyin told the officer he had a gun in the car and had a concealed weapons permit, according to the police report.

Oyeneyin and Leach were both asked to step out of the car.

According to the report, Leach did not have his shoes on and asked if he could retrieve them from the backseat. The officer told him, he would get the shoes for him.

When the officer retrieved the shoes, he allegedly found a gun with an extended magazine on the floor with Leach’s shoes, which is not allowed in the concealed weapons permit.

It was not clear who had the gun in their possession, so both were placed under arrest for unlawful carrying of a pistol, according to the police report.
