Regis Grimes

A 21-year-old with a prior felony drug conviction was charged  with possessing a gun stolen from a car in January after officers saw him trying to get rid of it last week, police said.

Regis Grimes, 21, pulled a gun from under his shirt and tossed it into an alley near an abandoned house at 3519 S. Saratoga St. in the Milan neighborhood on Monday, Aug. 23, while officers were watching, according to a New Orleans Police Department news release. When officers found the gun, they determined that it had been stolen in January in an auto burglary at A.P. Tureaud and North Tonti streets, the release states.

Grimes was arrested on charges of illegal possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen gun and felon in possession of a firearm. He has a previous conviction for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

Grimes is being held at the Orleans Parish Jail on a combined $45,000 bond.
