The York City man was charged with carrying a firearm without a license, a third-degree felony. He was arraigned on that charge before Magisterial District Judge Laura S. Manifold Tuesday. His bail was set at $1,500, which he posted the same day. 

According to police, officers investigating a narcotics violation impounded the vehicle in order to apply for a search warrant. After a search warrant was granted and executed, officers found a Glock 23 handgun.
