[ARCHIVED] Lancaster Man Guilty of Having Stolen Gun in Car's Center Console

Aaron Q. Handy

A Lancaster man was recently convicted of having a stolen pistol in his vehicle during a 2014 traffic stop in the first block of East Vine Street.

A Lancaster County jury convicted 30-year-old Aaron Q. Handy of a felony count of possessing a firearm without a license following a 2-day trial.

The jury deliberated four hours before returning its verdict on July 12. Assistant District Attorney Deborah Greathouse prosecuted.

On Nov. 2, 2014, Lancaster city police found an H&K pistol in a center console of a Chrysler sedan that Handy was driving. The gun was reported stolen from Miami, Fla.

County Judge Margaret Miller, who presided over the trial, will order sentence following a background check. Handy faces a potential state prison sentence, in accordance with state sentencing guidelines.

The jury returned a not-guilty verdict on a felony drug charge.

Handy also has a pending charge of persons not to possess firearms because he has a prior felony robbery conviction. That charge will be addressed separately.

Lancaster city police Officer Jason Windlebleck filed charges.
