TEANECK, N.J. -- The smell of pot from a car stopped for going the wrong way on a Teaneck street led to the arrests of four people who authorities said were carrying a loaded handgun and a black ski mask.

Officer Jason Hosey "detected the strong odor of burnt marijuana" after he stopped the 2010 silver Toyota Camry on Sterling Place, a one-way between Prince Street and Red Road, Police Chief Robert A. Carney said.

After all four occupants were removed, a partially unzipped waist bag containing a a black and silver Smith and Wesson 9mm handgun with a high-capacity magazine was found, loaded with seven rounds of ammunition, the chief said.

"Also discovered behind the driver’s seat was a black ski mask," he said.

Arrested were the driver, Ashley Amanda Gilead, 19, and front-seat passenger, Ramahdan Muhammad, 20, both of Teaneck, as as well as the two rear-seat passengers, Jonathan Hagley, 18, also of Teaneck, and 19-year-old ex-con Altariq Fuquan Gumbs of Newark, Carney said.

Charges include possession of a handgun and of a large-capacity magazine, he said.

Gilead, who also received traffic summonses, posted $25,000 bail and was released pending an appearance in Central Municipal Court in Hackensack.

Gumbs, who Carney said initially gave a false identity when he was arrested, was ordered held on $15,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail. Charges also include being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, the chief said. He also was wanted on a no-bail warrant out of Newark, Carney said.

Hagley and Muhammad were also ordered held on $15,000 bail each in the county jail, the chief said.
