In late-2019 the Little Rock Police Department finished a trial of body-worn cameras. One of the participating officers was Officer Cole Reppond, who is behind the camera in this footage of a traffic stop… that turned up a .25 caliber pistol in the center console of the stopped vehicle.
It had a filed-off serial number.
Watch as the subject beats the odds, and somehow manages to walk away from the stop a free man.
Note: the Gun Control Act of 1968 requires that all newly manufactured firearms produced by licensed manufacturers in the United States or imported into the United States bear a number. That number is a “serial number,” not a “VIN number.”
