Elkins man arrested for concealing firearm in pocket

BUCKHANNON – An Elkins man who has been banned from carrying a firearm because of a prior felony conviction was arrested Saturday for allegedly concealing a weapon in his pocket.

Deputy Seth Cutright with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department charged Edward Hosaflook, 58, with being a prohibited person with a concealed firearm, a felony, and concealing a firearm, a misdemeanor.

The incident occurred on Saturday, Nov. 10, when Cutright responded to a trespassing complaint at an address on Carter Road. Upon arriving at the address, Cutright found Hosaflook there, according to the complaint.

While Cutright was talking to the homeowner, who was not named in the complaint, Senior Trooper P.J. Robinette with the Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police “started to pat search” Hosaflook and allegedly found a firearm Harrington Richardson 38 “concealed in the defendant’s front right pocket.”

According to Cutright, Hosaflook is prohibited from possessing a firearm for a felony conviction of DUI third offense.

Magistrate Kay Hurst set bond at $5,000 cash only.

The penalty for a conviction of concealing a firearm is a fine ranging from $100 to $1,000 or confinement in jail for a time no less than 90 days but no more than one year or both.

The penalty for a conviction of being a prohibited person with a concealed firearm is confinement in the state penitentiary for three to five years, or a fine of up to $5,000 or both.
