A Marion man was arraigned Monday on drug dealing and firearm-related charges stemming from a traffic stop for a burnt out license plate light near 38th and Illinois streets late last week.

Police say they found a firearm and two bags of unidentified pills in the gap between the passenger seat and center console after the officer who initiated the stop said he smelled the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the car.
