Giribaldi & Manaras is successful at having Gun Charges Dismissed in Delaware County

The facts surrounding our client’s arrest stem from an investigatory stop conducted by Tinicum Police Department on our client that was seen entering and exiting the Comfort Inn on two (2) separate occasions within a short period of time.  The officer indicated that the Comfort Inn was located in a high crime drug area.  During the course of the stop, the officer conducted a pat down search and felt what he believed to be an empty holster on the client’s right side.  The client was then handcuffed and his vehicle was subsequently searched without the benefit of search warrant.  A black semi-automatic Glock handgun was located in vehicle.

The client was arrested and charged with Firearms not to be Carried without a License, and Prohibited Offensive Weapons.  After a timely motion was filed by Giribaldi & Manaras, in the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County the case was dismissed.
