A 21-year-old Bremerton man, Jamel Jackson, was arrested May 25 for possessing a stolen firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to court documents.

Jackson was at a party in Bremerton when he and a female allegedly got into a domestic dispute before leaving in a taxi to catch a ferry to Seattle. A Bremerton Police Department officer pulled the taxi over and Jackson was asked to step out of the car so he could be patted down for weapons, according to a BPD statement of probable cause.

The officer felt a firearm on the suspect’s right hip, which was identified as a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun. According to investigators the pistol already had a round chambered. Jackson told the officer he did not have a concealed weapons permit.

Two large containers were also found containing what appeared to be marijuana, weighing in at 50.8 grams, according to the BPD officer. After the firearms serial number was searched, it was discovered to have been stolen. Later the Lakewood Police Department advised that the firearm belonged to a member of the Army.

Jackson was previously convicted of two counts of robbery in the second degree and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree, the report states. He is currently being held on bail for $100,000.
