An Aurora man and his juvenile brother were both arrested after officers found drugs and handguns in their vehicle during a traffic stop in Aurora on Wednesday.

According to the Aurora Police Department, members of the department's Special Operations Group performed a traffic stop on a vehicle being driven by 22-year-old Tyrin Pugh-Cox of Nottingham Dr. in the area of Indian Trl. and Lake St. at around 5:00 p.m.

Investigators suspected that drugs were present in the vehicle, and they subsequently searched Pugh-Cox and his 17-year-old brother.

During the search, investigators allegedly found a small amount of cannabis and crack cocaine and a loaded 9mm handgun located on the juvenile.

Investigators additionally located a .45 caliber pistol inside of the vehicle.

Pugh-Cox, who had a valid FOID card at the time of the incident, was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for Unlawful Use of a Weapon for unlawfully possessing the handgun in the vehicle.

The 17-year-old juvenile was charged with Possession of Cannabis, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Use of a Weapon with No FOID Card, Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Class X Felony Armed Violence.

Pugh-Cox was transported to the Kane County Jail for booking, and the juvenile was transported to the Kane County Youth Home in St. Charles. Both will appear in court on the charges later this month.
