Belmont man charged with possessing loaded gun in car

GILFORD — A Belmont man has been charged with one misdemeanor count of possessing a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a permit and one felony count of possession of heroin.

Police said an officer on routine patrol at 7:45 p.m. on November 18 noticed two suspicious cars in the Airport Plaza parking lots along with a group of individuals gathered around the vehicles.

The officer spoke with Elwin Weeks, 30, of Brown Hill Road and saw a handgun in plain view in the car. Through the course of his investigation, he found the handgun — a Walther P-99 — was loaded.

It is against N.H. law to have a loaded gun in a car without a concealed weapon permit.

Police also said they found a small amount of heroin on him.

Weeks was released on personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division on December 19.
