Officers sniff out pot, gun
26-year-old visits RPD for permit, but marijuana odor arouses suspicion, leads to arrest

BY MIKE BENNETT • STAFF WRITER • September 18, 2009

Mitchel L. Legg got the $50 back that he paid Thursday with his application to carry a gun.

He also was arrested on a charge of carrying a gun without a license.

Legg visited the Richmond Police Department at 11:30 a.m. to fill out an application.

Officers and staff members noticed a heavy smell as he was doing the paperwork.

"He reeked of marijuana, so they patted him down," said Chief Kris Wolski. "Officers (Heather) Edwards and (John) Lackey were aware that things just didn't add up. It's a good thing they did."

That's because the patdown discovered that besides marijuana, Legg was carrying a .22 semiautomatic handgun.

"It (gun) was in a little nylon holster under his shirt," Wolski said.

Legg, 26, of 327 S. W. 17th St., was arrested and lodged in Wayne County Jail at 12:15 p.m. on a Class D felony charge of possession of marijuana and a Class A misdemeanor charge of carrying a handgun without a license.

He was released after posting a $750 cash bond.

Wolski signs all gun permit requests after the information is verified and the applicant qualifies.

Some people are refused because of past criminal offenses, but he can't remember someone being arrested in a similar situation to Legg's.

Wolski doesn't expect to see Legg's gun permit application.

"I said we may as well give him his filing fee back," he said.

Wolski said more people are coming to the department to request permits. Last year, he estimated 12 to 15 were processed each week.

"It's way up from what it's been," Wolski said. "I've had times when we've had that many in a day."

He said many of the applicants cite rumors that the change in presidents will toughen gun laws.

"It instantly went up (after the November election)," he said.

Squeeze trigger, BANG, repeat. Kind of boring, but I never cared for drama.
