James K. Rei­ley

POTTSVILLE — A man charged by Pottsville po­lice for car­ry­ing a firearm in his ve­hi­cle without a valid li­cense waived his right to a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing be­fore Mag­is­te­rial Dis­trict Judge James J. Rei­ley.

Ken­neth J. Wil­liams, 41, of 811 W. Race St., Pottsville, was ar­rested by De­tec­tive Krik Becker and charged with one felony count each of pos­ses­sion of a firearm pro­hib­ited and firearms not to be car­ried without a li­cense as well as a mis­de­meanor charge of tam- per­ing with or fab­ri­cat­ing phys­i­cal ev­i­dence.

By waiv­ing his right to a hear­ing, Wil­liams will now have to an­swer to all three charges against him in Schuylkill County Court.

Becker charged Wil­liams with an in­ci­dent on June 18 when of­fi­cers were called to 224 N. 10th St. for a re­port of shots fired.

The sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mined that Wil­liams pos­sessed a hand­gun without a li­cense, Becker said, adding that Wil­liams said the weap- on was dis­carded on Peach Moun­tain and then ad­mit­ted know­ing he was a con­victed felon and is not al­lowed to pos­sess a firearm.
