(KRON) — A “ghost gun” and a high capacity magazine containing 22 rounds of 9mm ammunition were recovered from a car in an unincorporated area of Santa Rosa just outside of Rohnert Park on Monday. The car was stopped by officers from the California Highway Patrol and the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety. The five people who were in the car were detained, according to a social media post from the Sonoma Sheriff.

Ghost guns are privately made firearms that are unregistered and have no serial number. The weapon recovered in this incident closely resembled a Glock 26 handgun, according to law enforcement.

Deputies discovered that one or more the car’s occupants were associated with a nearby hotel room. Upon arriving and searching the room, deputies discovered three pounds of methamphetamine packaged to be sold, according the social media post. Three of the car’s five occupants were either on the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Parole or on local Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS), and had prior gang associations.

The sheriff’s office first received a report of the car driving in the area of Mecham Road and Pepper Road in Petaluma at 4:40 p.m. Gunshots were heard coming from the car which was seen traveling northbound on Mecham Road toward Stony Point Road. An officer with the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety found the car about 25 minutes later in the area of Millbrae Avenue and Whistler Avenue.
