KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha Police say they arrested two people found with rifles-in their pants.

The first was arrested at 1:30 Monday afternoon after a traffic stop.

The rifle was altered with a saw to make it shorter.

Police say the 21 year old suspect was recently out on parole for being a felon in possession of a firearm on a previous occasion.

Police also allege that the suspect had pain pills for which he did not have a prescription.

About 90 minutes later police found a 19 year old suspect with a warrant out for his arrest.

After being stopped by a school, he was also found to be in possession of a rifle also inside the waistline of his pants.

Both suspects are currently in the Kenosha County jail pending further charges.
