A traffic stop in Albany ended with two men facing weapons charges after police say one of them was found hiding a sawed-off shotgun in his pants.

Police stopped a car Monday on Lark Street and noticed right away that the driver, 24-year-old Alton Franklin of Albany, had a gravity knife sitting on the driver's side armrest.

Then they noticed that his passenger, 24-year-old Raymier Worthen of Troy, appeared to be hiding something in his waistband. He turned out to be concealing a loaded, sawed-off 12-guage shotgun in his pants leg.

Both men have had run-ins with the law before. Franklin was arrested on drug charges in April. Worthen was charged with robbery in 2013.
