OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities in Oklahoma City say a traffic stop for a seat belt violation led to the arrest of three fugitives.

A deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle near Sheridan Ave. and Villa Ave. after he noticed a passenger in the car was not wearing a seat belt.

After stopping the car, officials say the driver, 42-year-old Michael Hogan, could not find his license.

Deputies soon learned he had an outstanding warrant in Canadian County.

The passenger who was not wearing a seat belt, 29-year-old Shawn Draper, also had an outstanding warrant in Oklahoma City.

When speaking with another passenger in the car, authorities say 33-year-old Christopher Kujac gave officers another name.

However, he later admitted that he gave them wrong information because he had outstanding warrants.

Officers say 32-year-old Kari McGaunn did not have any warrants but had a pipe with drug residue on it in her purse.

Deputies say they also found a pistol in the car, which is against the law since all four people inside the car are convicted felons.

Hogan was arrested for possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.

Draper was arrested for possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction and failure to wear a seat belt.

Kujac was taken into custody for obstructing an officer and possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.

McGaunn was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.
