At around 4pm today, SAPD officers were called to Dean’s Pawn Shop regarding a patron who may have attempted to pawn a stolen shotgun and had allegedly pawned another stolen gun yesterday. While the status of these guns being stolen could not be immediately confirmed, a record check on the accused revealed he has previous criminal convictions for Grand Larceny and Daytime Burglary in 2011. Anyone convicted of a felony may not possess a firearm.
The man was arrested and charged with being a Prohibited Person Possessing a Firearm. Since the underlying convictions weren’t serious enough, this charge of possessing the firearm is a misdemeanor. Arrested was Raymond Adkins (36 y.o.a. from Griffithsville, WV). He was taken to Kanawha Magistrate Court for arraignment.
All persons arrested are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
