CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A boyfriend and girlfriend are facing gun charges even though she has a concealed weapons permit.

Police say a gun ended up in the hands of a convicted felon. So he went to jail and so did his girlfriend for how it happened.

The story started with a gun in the glove box of a car and then a purse.

But police say they found it in the waistband of Corey Etheridge, and he's on probation for drugs.

So what about the glove box and the purse?

Investigators say Ashley Jackson has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. She told cops she had the gun before it fell on the ground and her boyfriend Corey picked it up.

But police say a witness saw Jackson give her boyfriend the gun and it happened as they had an angry confrontation with some guys about a dirt bike.

In fact, police say that gun didn't even have any marks on it, didn't look as if it had been dropped on the ground.
