Germantown Man Arrested For Under-Age Handgun Possession

Terrill R. Townes, 20, of Honeybear Lane in Germantown was arrested Thursday, Nov. 12 after a report of suspicious activity.

Montgomery County Police say Townes and three other occupants were sitting inside a parked vehicle at the 20000 block of Dunstable Circle. A resident reported that they appeared to be smoking marijuana.

When officers arrived on the scene, they noted a strong odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle. Police presented themselves and identified Townes as one of the rear-seated passengers.

While speaking with Townes, “officers observed him reach for a bag on the floorboard where he had been sitting.”

Inside the bag was a loaded 9mm handgun. Officers immediately arrested Townes, transporting him to the Central Processing Unit.

He was charged with a handgun-related offense including possession of a handgun by a person under 21. “Townes was released after posting a $3,000 bond,” according to a press release.

Townes, along with another occupant, were issued “civil citations for possession of marijuana under 10 grams.”
