Xavier Jamal Rickerson, 22, of the 2800 block of Brentway Drive, was charged with possession of firearm by first offender, possession of article with altered identification, and possessing or carrying a concealed weapon, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
About 1:50 p.m. Friday, a patrolling deputy said Rickerson changed the direction he was walking when the police car drove near. He began to walk faster toward the front door of a house before the officer stopped him.
Rickerson told the officer he did not live at the house and admitted to carrying weapons. He was handcuffed and the officer found a .22-caliber revolver in his pants pocket.
He was convicted in October 2009 of burglary, according to the report.
