A Charleston man was jailed after police said he was carrying around a stolen shotgun.
Officers said Daniel Maxwell dropped what they initially thought was a stick under a car on the city's West Side Monday evening. Upon further inspection, police said, they found that "stick" was in fact a 12-gauge pump shotgun that had been stolen.
Police said Maxwell was acting suspiciously, but claimed he picked up a stick to defend himself from an angry friend who he had refused to help in a burglary.
Police said they also found Aaron Richardson with a pistol, taken in the same apartment break-in on Bueuhring Avenue. Both men are charged with burglary.
