    A West Virginia man faces multiple weapons-possession charges after he was found with several handguns at a Riverhead motel, police said Sunday.

    Riverhead police said they received a call from an employee at the Greenview Inn on West Main Street at noon Saturday saying that he had recovered a loaded semi-automatic handgun from the premises.

    Following an investigation it was determined that Russell L. Kirk of Fairmont, West Virginia, was in possession of a loaded Glock 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and two loaded Taurus 45 cal. semi-automatic handguns, police said.




    Police said one of the handguns was stolen in West Virginia. Additional details were not immediately available regarding Kirk’s age, exactly where in the motel the guns were found, and whether he had been staying at the motel.

    Kirk had been working in Riverhead, police said, but no information was provided about his employment.

    Police said Kirk is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Sign up for the Power on Trial newsletter

      "Police said one of the handguns was stolen in West Virginia."

      I'm not seeing where it says he stole the gun. One of the things about living in America is firearms can be privately bought and sole freely. I used to keep bills of sale for this reason. Always had a fear of purchasing a firearm that was stolen.

      Price of freedom I suppose.

                    The Greenview Inn is a sleazbag welfare motel. No one from out of state would even find this dump unless they're involved with some sketchy activity.

                        Ha ha ha you think he's going to do time?
                        Just another slap on the wrist so he can get out and get involved in a shooting so a "real" gun crime can be reported.

                          But were the handguns full semi automatic? That is the liberal sinkhole question.

                            Glocks might be among the most stolen guns of all since so many guns are stolen from LE agencies and police officers' cars.
                            Here's a list from just California.

                              There is exponentially more Glocks in the hands of non-LEO's - and when you consider there are more than 230,000 (estimated) firearms stolen from gun owners each year, that's a LOT of stolen Glocks.
