Youngstown police find loaded gun on Warren man
A Warren man was arrested late Sunday on firearms charges after police found a loaded 9mm handgun on him.
An officer was on patrol on Dennick Avenue near Ohio Avenue on the North Side about 10:45 p.m. when he spotted three men walking in the roadway, reports state, and he stopped to talk to them.
The report also noted that officers were urged to be more vigilant because of three robberies on the North Side the night before.
One of the men, William Key, 26, had a strong odor of marijuana on him, reports state and Kenneth Key, 28, of Hollywood Street NE in Warren and another man were wearing bulky winter coats despite a muggy evening. When an officer tried to search Kenneth Key, he pulled away and tried to walk away before he was pinned against a cruiser and admitted he had a gun, reports said. Reports said the gun was loaded with 10 rounds.
The other man with the coat ran away and an officer spotted him crawl out from underneath a parked truck on Dennick Avenue with a gun in his hand, but officers could not catch him. They did, however, have his wallet and state of Tennessee identification card, reports said. William Key was cited for marijuana possession and Kenneth Key was taken to the Mahoning County jail for the charges of carrying a concealed weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
