WOODSTOCK – Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Kevin Larkin, an Edinburg resident, on Saturday evening. He was charged with drug, paraphernalia and ammunition possession.
Larkin has previous felony violations, leaving him unable to own firearms or ammunition.
Lt. Scott Thompson said Larkin’s home was searched as a matter of his supervised probation. A condition of his probation leaves Larkin without his Fourth Amendment right that protects him from search or seizure without a warrant, Thompson said.
In the course of the search of Larkin’s home, investigators found a number of drugs and paraphernalia along with ammunition, though no firearm was found in the home.
“The statute names both firearms and ammunition,” Thompson said. “If you’re a convicted felon, you can’t be in possession of either one.”
Thompson said he didn’t know if anyone else lived in the house with Larkin, but that he was responsible for ensuring there weren’t any firearms or ammunition in the house.
“You have to take precautions to make sure those types of things aren’t there,” Thompson said.
Larkin will appear in court at 9 a.m. April 5.
