New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore arrested in Cleveland, accused of possessing stolen gun – cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio — New Orleans Saints cornerback and Cleveland native Marshon Lattimore was arrested late Thursday in Cleveland on suspicion of possessing a stolen gun, according to police.

The 24-year-old was booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail on a charge of receiving stolen property. Lattimore has not been formally charged.

Jail records say Cleveland police’s gang investigators arrested Lattimore about 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

The records show three other men were arrested by the gang unit at the same time as Lattimore. One was arrested on suspicion of improperly handling a gun in a car and two were arrested on suspicion of having weapons under disability, meaning they illegally possessed a gun with a felony record.

Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia confirmed the arrest hours after cleveland.com/The Plain Dealer reported Lattimore’s arrest.

Ciaccia said in an email that police stopped the car Lattimore and the three others were in on East 97th Street and Carr Avenue for “multiple traffic violations.” Officers spotted a loaded gun inside the car, Ciaccia said.

Police searched the car and found Lattimore with a loaded handgun that had been reported stolen from Euclid. Officers arrested the three others inside in the car on gun charges, and cited the driver for driving without working taillights.

Ciaccia said no other information on the arrest was available.

Lattimore is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and the 2017 Defensive Rookie of the Year. He starred at Glenville High School and Ohio State University before the Saints drafted him in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.
