    Man Arrested in Ocean City, VA for having a Gun in the Car

    I thought it was legal, as long as you're not a felon, to have a gun in the car in Virginia as long as it is in a container or compartment in the vehicle. (That is for non CHP holders).

    Maybe the guy was a felon.

    Isn't Ocean City in Maryland? If so, that would explain the arrest.

    Ok...... no seat belt, expect to get pulled over. That is what it is. Police search the car (whether consent given or not..... another topic) find a gun AND an 'unnamed' illegal' 'substance' (drugs).

    Your gonna get arrested. A minor possession durg arrest in no big news, but a GUN arrest?!? The media WILL 'announce' that.

    It's very possible the following occurred,Vehicle pulled for seat belt violation,upon contact with driver Officer smells what appears to be the odor of marijuana eminating from interior of vehicle/and or sees a roach/blunt,at this point doesn't matter if driver consents to search or not,LEO has established PC to search for contraband,upon search for Illegal drugs they find the gun in the suitcase.
    I'm surprised he wasn't charged with possession of a gun while in possession of Illegal drugs which IIRC is a Felony and several years in the pokey

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    He was released on personal recognizance, and is scheduled to face the gun charge June 4 in Ocean City District Court
    What the????

    This guy is gone. Him "showing" up for Court is about as likely as me winning the Million Dollar Lottery today.

    I wonder what the real reason is that they let him go?
