Few details were available Sunday on the arrests of Michael Courtney, 35, and Cornelius Watson, 22, who are charged with unlawful carrying of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm, said Capt. Robert Carson.
Carson said the men were arrested after an 8 p.m. traffic stop near Lafayette and Boundary streets in Beaufort. Watson also is charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, but Carson could not comment on the charge.
Both men are being held for prosecution, according to the Beaufort County Detention Center log.
