Cambridge Teen Arrested On Weapons Charges

Posted: Updated:

TRAPPE, Md. - A Cambridge teenager was arrested on weapons charges after police stopped a vehicle. According to the Trappe Police Department, officers were reporting to a possible burglary in progress around 5:40 PM, on November 8th, when they stopped what they believed to be the suspect vehicle, as it was attempting to leave the apartment complex on Ocean Gateway.

Police pulled the four suspects out, and searched the car, where they reportedly found a sawed-off shotgun on the floor of the car, along with ammunition. The police investigation revealed that it wasn't a burglary, but that 18-year-old James Skinner had brought the gun with him, while going to look for someone who was supposed to be at that apartment.

Police arrested Skinner, and charged him with a slew of offenses including handgun/sawed-off shotgun in a vehicle, possession of short-barreled shotgun; possession of a regulated firearm - short-barreled shotgun, by person under 21 years of age; possession of a shotgun after having been convicted of a crime of violence; 4 counts of reckless endangerment; and disorderly conduct. He is being held at the Talbot County Detention Center on $110,000 bond.
