Joshua Per­alta, 28, was charged with firearms not be car­ried with­out a li­cense, reg­is­tra­tion and cer­tifi­cate of ti­tle re­quired, and for op­er­at­ing a vehicle with­out a cer­tifi­cate of in­spec­tion after po­lice Chief Michael Mor­resi stopped the vehicle for an ex­pired reg­is­tra­tion near Broad and Dean streets shortly after 2 p.m., ac­cord­ing to a crim­i­nal com­plaint.

The chief said he no­ticed the ex­pired reg­is­tra­tion and in­spec­tion while ap­proach­ing the vehicle and learned that a war­rant had been is­sued from Ha­zle­ton for Per­alta, the com­plaint reads.

He was ar­rested and taken to Ha­zle­ton po­lice on the war­rant, Mor­resi said.
