MILWAUKEE-- Two men and one juvenile were arrested after the Milwaukee Police Department found 855 grams of marijuana and three guns, one of which was stolen, according to MPD. 

According to MPD, District Two Officers Matthew Tracy, Julian Nunez, and Taylor Schmitz responded to the 1300 block of W. Greenfield Ave. last week after a witness called police to report that a male subject had pulled out a gun during an argument.

"When officers arrived, witnesses pointed to the subject's car that was still on scene and officers smelled marijuana coming from it," said MPD. 

Charges were filed against the two adult male suspects, Rogelio M Fleming and Marcus U Juarez, and a 16-year-old male was also taken into custody. 

"The collaboration between witnesses and the responding officers helped take guns and a sizable amount of drugs off the street," said MPD.
