On Friday, November 10, 2017 at approximately 4:20 AM an Upper Allen Police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle being operated by Gamble on US Route 15 for observed vehicle code violations. During the investigation, the officer could smell the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle and could also see marijuana residue inside the vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a loaded 9mm handgun which had the serial number obliterated. Gamble was arrested on scene and transported to the Cumberland County Prison for processing and arraignment. Bail was set at $25,000 by MDJ Paul Fegley and a preliminary hearing has been set for a later date before MDJ Mark Martin.

The Upper Allen Police were assisted on scene by the Lower Allen Township Police Department.
