Two Washington, D.C., men face felony charges in connection with crashing a stolen vehicle this past weekend into a Capitol Hill complex barricade, after which police allegedly found a cache of ammunition and weapons including a device to convert a Glock into a machine gun-like pistol. 

Those arrested have been identified as Ricardo Glass and Onosetale Okojie, both 20.

They face over a dozen charges, including carrying a pistol without a license, being a felon in possession of a firearm, driving under the influence and unlawfully possessing a machine gun, the U.S. Capitol Police said Monday.

Multiple hip-hop publications have identified Glass as the D.C. rapper known as Baby Jamo.

The incident occurred at about 2:15 p.m on Sunday as officers noticed the vehicle idling at a green traffic and suspecting the driver of being impaired. The driver sped away when police tried to make a traffic stop, then crashed into the barricade. 

Glass and Okojie were arrested in an ensuing footchase by police.

Police say they found the coverter – known as a "Giggle Switch – in a flowerbed in which one of the suspects was captured. They also say the the Glock had a 22-round extended magazine.
