CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Frank Q. Jackson, the grandson of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, was arraigned on weapon charges Thursday morning.
Jackson was arrested on June 9 by Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority police and charged with carrying concealed weapons and improper handling of firearms in a motor vehicle. During the arraignment, the judge set Jackson's bond at $5,000.
CMHA police found a .40 Glock, at least 85 bullets, marijuana, and a digital scale in Jackson's possession during a vehicle search in June.
He was indicted on the charges by a Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Grand Jury in July.
Jackson had a separate run-in with police in April, when he was pulled over for allowing a person to ride in the back of his pick-up truck. One of the people in Jackson's vehicle during the stop was arrested because he has a warrant out for an attempted murder charge.
Mayor Frank Jackson released a statement following his grandson's arrest in June:
