By BBN Staff: Today, Omar Velasquez appeared in front of the San Pedro Magistrate in connection with charges of keeping a firearm and ammunition without a gun license.
In December 2015, he reportedly took officers to an area where a .38 revolver and ammunition had been hidden.
According to Velasquez, he was simply being a good citizen assisting the cops until things took a turn for the worst and he was charged.
At trial today, he appeared unrepresented. The prosecution was not ready to proceed and so the matter was adjourned until May 25, 2017
