A convicted felon is facing multiple charges after having a 17-year-old juvenile conceal his handgun during a traffic stop.

On March 31 at 10:49 p.m., Deputy D.T. Aubrecht stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the area of Warrenton Road near the I-95 on-ramp. Deputy Aubrecht approached the vehicle and identified the driver as Linwood Davis, 40, of King George, and the passenger as a 17-year-old juvenile.

While Deputy Aubrecht returned to his vehicle to run the driver’s license information, Deputy B.U. Demirci remained with the vehicle. Deputy Demirci then radioed to deputies that he had just observed Davis pass a handgun to the juvenile to conceal. Deputies quickly responded to the vehicle and detained the occupants without incident.

With the occupants safely detained, deputies began a search of the vehicle. Deputy Demirci recovered a purse the juvenile had used to conceal the handgun. An open bottle of alcoholic beverage was also found inside the purse. The odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Davis indicated the bottle belonged to him. Deputy Aubrecht also discovered Davis is a convicted felon.

Davis was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, concealment of a firearm by a convicted felon, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and drinking while driving. He was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
