NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police said an early-morning routine traffic stop helped to recover thousands in equipment stolen from a business in south Nashville.

Officers pulled over a car around 2 a.m. Wednesday after seeing it run a flashing red light on Haywood Lane.

During the stop, police noticed a generator and several boxes of window tint in the back seat. A BB pistol that resembled a real semi-automatic gun was also found.

After talking to the three people inside the car, detectives learned they had just burglarized Precision Window Tinting in the 1200 block of Murfreesboro Pike.

Police also found another generator, car stereos and a flat screen television in the trunk.

Gilberto Ramirez and Ricardo Najera-Castillo, both 18, were arrested on charges of burglary and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Ramirez was also charged with running the red light and driving without a license.

A 15-year-old in the car, who is believed to have served as the lookout during the burglary, was booked into juvenile detention on charges of burglary, theft and curfew violation.

Ramirez remains jailed on $13,500 bond. Najera-Castillo is being held on $12,000 bond.
