Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A minor ordinance violation led to the arrest of a Rochester man on felony charges.

A Rochester patrol officer spotted two people sitting in a vehicle parked at Silver Lake Park early Saturday.

Because late-night parking is prohibited in the park, the officer checked on the two men inside the car. When the officer smelled marijuana, the men were ordered out and the vehicle was searched.

The officer found a loaded handgun under the front passenger seat. It was learned the gun had been stolen in Rochester earlier this year.
