A 16-year-old boy was charged Tuesday with possessing a fully loaded handgun, driving without a license and a fake registration following a traffic stop in Williston Park, police said.

Officers conducted a traffic stop at 1:53 a.m. after noticing a juvenile driving a black 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee westbound on Hillside Avenue near Willis Avenue and committing multiple traffic infractions.

Upon investigation, officers found a loaded Taurus G2C 9-millimeter firearm in the juvenile’s jacket pocket and a false Texas vehicle registration. The car was also uninsured, uninspected and impounded following the traffic stop, they said.

The juvenile was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm and numerous vehicle and traffic law infractions, according to the police.
