Bail for an Abingdon man facing numerous charges of firearms possession was set at $50,000 Friday afternoon.
Shawn Michael Talbert, 20, of the 1000 block of Vernon Court, was charged with three counts of possession of a shotgun and three counts of possession of firearms.
Assistant Public Defender Brian Cunningham told District Court Judge Victor Butanis during Talbert's bail review hearing that he is a lifelong Maryland resident with one prior conviction. He asked Butanis to reduce Talbert's bail to $20,000. Assistant State's Attorney Bruce Smith asked for bail to remain as set and Butanis agreed.
