Man pleads guilty to carrying firearm without license in Abington Township

Rahshee Keith Mills, 35, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to felony charges of person not to possess a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license in connection with a November 2022, incident in Abington Township, The Reporter said.

An investigation began after Mills was stopped for a traffic violation in the area of Jenkintown Road and Roslyn Avenue in the Glenside section of Abington.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Abington Township Police Officer Daniel Burgmann, “the vehicle’s tint was so dark that you could not clearly see into the vehicle and the registered owner of the vehicle, Rahshee Mills, had a suspended license.”

Officers found a semiautomatic Glock handgun loaded with 14 rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber, along with marijuana and 13 pills believed to be ecstasy, police said.

Mills pleaded guilty before the trial, The Reporter said.

Sentencing has been deferred in lieu of a background investigation report, including a mental health evaluation. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 13.5 to 27 years in prison, The Reporter said, and was sent to the county jail without bail to await the hearing.
