St. Clair Man Facing Drug and Weapon Charges

Franklin County prosecutors have charged a St. Clair man with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Controlled Substance.  The charges stem from an incident Sunday evening when St. Clair officers were investigating a report of suspicious activity involving two men on Maple Street.  When officers arrived, they found 34-year old Brett Thompson and 30-year old Eric Bicknell of St. Clair in a minivan.  The department k-nine was called in.  The dog alerted on the vehicle leading to a search.  Officers found a loaded Ruger P-89 handgun, ammunition, 82 grams of marijuana, and amphetamine.  Thompson, who is a convicted felon, was arrested at the scene.  Bicknell was arrested on an outstanding warrant.  Bond for Thompson has been set at $25,000.  He is being held in the Franklin County Jail.
