Shawn P. O’Brien, was arrested Saturday night for allegedly pawning a stolen firearm at a Bremerton pawn shop.
Video surveillance of the transaction was recovered by the Bremerton Police Department and appeared to show a silver .410 gauge Taurus Judge being pawned by O’Brien.
The firearm matches the description of a gun that was stolen during a February burglary in the 6900 block of View Park Road SE in Port Orchard, according to documents. The firearm was one of 20-25 firearms that were allegedly stolen during that burglary, along with cash and coins.
O’Brien is currently the respondent of a protection order, thus not allowing him to own, possess or control any firearm, documents read. The firearm was recovered by the Bremerton Police Department on April 18, where it was entered into the evidence system.
The charges facing O’Brien are possession of a stolen firearm, trafficking in stolen property and unlawful possession of a firearm in the first degree. O’Brien is being held on $200,000 bail.
