A Manchester man has been arrested after a stolen gun was found in his possession
MANCHESTER –Malik Richards, 22, was arrested after a stolen gun was found in the vehicle he was sitting in at a 7-Eleven on Thursday. Richards, out on bail, was recognized by two Manchester officers when he began making suspicious movements inside the cab of the truck.
Richards cooperated when officers asked him to step outside and they found a crack pipe and a switchblade on his person.
Officers searched the pick-up truck after speaking with the owner, Nikita Park, and found a .45 caliber handgun that was reported stolen last week in Milford. Park was not charged in the incident.
Richards has been charged with receiving stolen property and violation of bail conditions. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.
