William F. Short III, age 21 of Chester, was charged with Carrying a Firearm without a License, Theft by Unlawful Taking or Disposition, and Criminal Conspiracy. The arrest follows an incident that occurred on May 14, 2020, at approx. 5:00 p.m in the 1300 block of Baltimore Pike in New Garden Township. The victim called police after he had three pairs of sneakers stolen from him. Short ran from the scene but was taken into custody, a short time later, when he showed up at the station after calling about picking up his firearm, located in the vehicle during the stop. A records check revealed Short was not licensed to carry a firearm in the state of Pennsylvania. Short was transported to Chester County Prison, where he was processed and held for arraignment. Short was committed after failing to post bail. The case is pending a preliminary hearing.
