EAST BRIDGEWATER — Two men were arrested on drug and firearms charges after a traffic stop over the weekend, East Bridgewater Police Chief Michael Jenkins announced.

Kyle Conward, 20, of Mansfield, and Kelvin Cardoso, 22, of East Bridgewater, face multiple charges after police found a loaded firearm and marijuana in their vehicle.

The incident occurred on Saturday, June 8, at 3:31 p.m., when officers spotted a black Volkswagen sedan without an inspection sticker on Bedford Street.

After making a sudden turn into a shopping plaza, the vehicle was stopped by police.

Conward, the driver, was arrested after officers discovered he was operating without a license, the vehicle was uninsured, and the plates did not match the vehicle.

Cardoso, the passenger, had active felony arrest warrants and was also placed under arrest.

A loaded firearm was found in the glove compartment, and both men were charged with carrying a firearm without a license among other offenses.

Officers also seized marijuana packaged in foil.

Both Conward and Cardoso were booked at the East Bridgewater Police Department and arraigned Monday morning in Brockton District Court.
