Police locate suspect in Montgomery Village hiding with an armed loaded handgun
Officers from the Montgomery County Department of Police have arrested Christopher Bacchus, age 28, of Snouffer School Road in Gaithersburg, with firearm-related offenses to include possession of a loaded handgun and possession of a firearm.
Emergency Communications Center (911) received a call from a resident who saw two males using flashlights to look over the backyard fences of townhomes located in the 8700 block of Ravenglass Way in Montgomery Village.
The officer watched as the male ran to the townhome community parking lot and put an unknown object underneath a parked vehicle. The male, later identified as Bacchus, then walked away from the vehicle and attempted to hide behind a mound of grass.
When additional officers responded to the call, the first responding officer went to the vehicle where he had observed Bacchus put something down on the ground and located a loaded handgun.
Bacchus was placed under arrest and was transported to the Central Processing Unit and is being held without bond.
