8.28.2013 Stolen Handgun Arrest
On Wednesday August 28, 2013 at approximately 2:35 am, Officer Weaver of the Lancaster City Police Department conducted a vehicle stop of a 2012 Chrysler sedan along the 100 blk. S. Broad St. One of the vehicle occupants, identified as John Vazquez, was found to be in possession of a Ruger 9mm semi-automatic pistol. Vazquez does not have a valid permit to carry a handgun concealed on his person or in a vehicle. A check of the handgun found that it had been reported stolen to the Manor Twp. Police Department earlier this month.
As a result of this incident, Officer Weaver filed a Criminal Complaint against Vazquez, charging him with Receiving Stolen Property (F2) and Firearms not to be Carried Without a Permit (M1). The charges were filed before MDJ Ballentine. Vazquez was held for arraignment. MDJ Benner arraigned Vazquez on the Complaint. Vazquez was committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $15,000 bail.
