Police: York City felon found with stolen gun
A convicted felon was blasting music from a car in York City when police found him with a stolen gun and marijuana, according to officials.
Now, 23-year-old Jomar Noble Dickerson is in York County Prison without bail.
York City Police have charged Dickerson, of the 300 block of East King Street, with prohibited possession of a firearm, receiving stolen property, carrying a firearm without a license and marijuana possession.
Found Dickerson: York City Police Officer Justin Main heard very loud music coming from a BMW sedan that passed his vehicle in the 200 block of South Queen Street about 10:45 a.m. Thursday, July 26, officials said.
Main wrote in charging documents he could still hear the music from about a block away, according to court documents.
He pulled the vehicle over because the music violated an ordinance in the city, officials said.
Main found the driver and the passenger, Dickerson, sitting in the car, which had the scent of marijuana coming from it, according to police.
Main saw that both had outstanding warrants, and the two were taken into custody, court documents state.
Arrest: The BMW was searched because of the smell of marijuana coming from it, and Main found a .22 caliber handgun in the glove box, police said.
The handgun was reported stolen out of Mount Joy, in Lancaster County, according to court documents. It had five rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber, officials said.
Police spoke to the two, and Dickerson admitted the gun was his, charging documents state. Dickerson also told police there was marijuana in his underwear, which police say weighed a quarter of an ounce.
Dickerson was taken to the county's central booking unit. Once Dickerson was out of the police car, Main found additional marijuana on the floor of the car near where Dickerson sat, police said.
Dickerson, who has pleaded guilty to felony drug charges, is not allowed to have a gun, according to police.
Online court records state that Dickerson pleaded guilty to drug possession with intent to deliver in 2016.
Dickerson was arraigned on the charges Thursday afternoon. It's unclear if the driver faces charges. As of Friday, Aug. 3, no new charges were filed for him, according to online court records.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 23 at District Judge Ronald Haskell Jr.'s office.
