Welder in court for gun possession

A 26-year-old welder from Gasparillo is expected to appear before a San Fernando Magistrate on Monday after being held with a loaded revolver last Thursday.

Officers of the Gasparillo Police Station on mobile patrol in Harmony Hall, Gasparillo, on February 7 spotted the man walking along the roadway.

On seeing the officers, he quickly removed an object from his pants waist and threw it on the ground before walking away.

The officers stopped the suspect and carried out a search of the area where the object was dropped.

The search resulted in the discovery of one Smith and Wesson revolver loaded with four rounds of .38mm ammunition.

The 26-year-old welder of Charles Street, Gasparillo was arrested in connection with the find.
