Police conducted a frisk and found a handgun in Mr. K's pocket, Mr. K did not invoke his right to counsel and after being read his Miranda rights admitted ownership of the firearm. Mr. K was transported to the GSU Police Department. The firearm was found to be stolen from the Lafayette City area. Mr. K was then transported to Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
