Philly Man Charged In Local Gun Case

A Philadelphia man is facing gun and  drug charges after police responded to a report of an unresponsive  individual at the Super 8 Motel in West Springfield.  

Maurice Nelson is accused of possessing an unlicensed gun with a  defaced serial number, possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent  to distribute and possession of heroin. 

Police say they responded to the  motel at around 12:30 p.m. Monday and were ignored by Nelson as they  tried to make contact with them.

Officers reportedly were able to gain  entry through an unlocked window and say Nelson was sitting on a bed in  reach of a loaded gun.
