Officers arrested four people during a traffic stop early Sunday morning, the Bakersfield Police Department said.

Augustus Crawford, 20, Skylor Billings, 24, Latimore Hunter, 19, and a 16-year-old teen, all from Bakersfield, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy, and firearm- and gang-related charges, the BPD said.

When officers stopped the vehicle, one of the occupants exited the vehicle and entered a store where he discarded a loaded firearm, the release said.

The traffic stop was conducted about 3:40 a.m. in the 3400 block of Q Street.
