A 19-year-old Youngstown man faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana.

Police said Devron J. Hosey was walking with two other males on the city’s South Side at 11:54 p.m. Saturday when two officers noticed Hosey repeatedly grabbing his right waistband as if he had a gun there.

The three were stopped on East Avondale Avenue — described in a police report as an area of “high gang activity, narcotics sales, gunfire and armed robberies” — by officers.

The two males with Hosey cooperated with police and agreed to be searched for weapons; none was found, the police report states.

Hosey declined to be searched, but a police report states an officer saw the outline of a gun handle protruding through his untucked shirt in his right waist area. Police told Hosey they believed he was armed and patted him, finding a loaded .22-caliber revolver with six live rounds.

While being arrested, Hosey punched two officers during a struggle, the police report states.

Police said officers found a small amount of suspected marijuana in his right pants pocket.

Hosey was taken to the Mahoning County jail.

Police said the two males with Hosey fully complied with officers.

In 1994 at age 19 I took a look around and decided I needed to get out of the city so I joined the Navy and started out on a very nice life.

Can see the lawsuit now....he was being profiled and he'll get community service. He'll be in the news again, very soon. Hopefully the other 2 learned a lesson, highly doubtful though....
