I-Team: Man caught with loaded gun inside Cleveland jail after arrest
CLEVELAND — The FOX 8 I TEAM has learned a man had a loaded handgun on him even after getting arrested and taken to the Cleveland City Jail.
Charges have been filed against Keith Bolden.
Reports show he had a loaded .22, and it wasn’t discovered when he got arrested.
On Saturday, Cleveland Police arrested Bolden on Woodhill for an open container of alcohol.
A report shows officers patted him down and handcuffed him. Then they also stopped on the way to jail and “re-handcuffed” him after questions about what he was doing with his hands.
At the jail, an officer wrote, “I heard someone say ‘GUN’ and out of my left peripheral vision I observed a firearm being placed on the counter.”
That happened as a jail guard was searching Bolden, but the officer noted he did not see who put the gun on the counter.
Bolden is also now facing a charge for the gun.
Records show he was convicted before for trafficking in drugs.
