ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Rochester Police Department said that a firearms arrest led them to search a house on Denver Street overnight on Tuesday.

RPD said they found 18-year-old Nyzir Rosa and 19-year-old Gianni Vazquez with a loaded handgun, along with a self-assembled "ghost gun", inside their car. Police said an investigation after the arrest led them to search the Denver Street house with a SWAT team. RPD didn’t comment on how the arrest led them to the home.

Rosa and Vazquez were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and were taken to Monroe County Jail. Several agencies, including the RPD, NY State Police, and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office stopped their car around 7 p.m. on Tuesday after a brief car chase. Law enforcement first spotted the car at Rosewood Terrace and Greeley Street.

The house was an active scene for several hours into early Wednesday morning. The street was blocked off but it has since cleared.
