MONACA, Pa. (AP) – A Georgia man is jailed on charges he brought a stolen gun and ammunition into a western Pennsylvania movie theater.
Twenty-one-year-old William Gossett, of Covington, was arraigned Sunday on charges of receiving stolen property and carrying an unlicensed firearm stemming from his arrest Saturday evening at the Cinemark Theater in Center Township. That’s in Beaver County, about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
Police say they stopped Gossett after seeing him walking in the theater carrying a large bag and wearing long-sleeved military fatigues despite temperatures in the 90s.
Police say the gun found in the bag had been stolen from Columbiana, Ohio.
Police say Gossett has a felony record in Georgia and can’t possess the handgun, which police didn’t describe.
He doesn’t have an attorney listed in court records.
