A preliminary hearing for a Quaker City area woman accused of carrying a concealed weapon after allegedly making threats to harm her ex-husband has been scheduled for June 14 in the Cambridge Municipal Court.
Jessica Lynn Forshey, 39, is facing one count of carrying a concealed weapon, a fourth-degree felony, filed by a detective with the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office.
Forshey remained incarcerated in the Guernsey County Jail on a $50,000 bond set Wednesday during a hearing in the municipal court. The court denied allowing her to post 10 percent of the bond.
According to a dispatch report at the sheriff’s office, deputies were dispatched to the area of Third and Virginia avenues just after noon Monday after a caller reported her ex-daughter-in-law was coming to her residence armed with a gun.
The caller advised their son received a call from a female reporting Forshey was armed and waiting on him at his Third Avenue residence. The caller reported seeing Forshey on nearby Virginia Drive on their way home a short time earlier.
Deputies responded to the neighborhood and reported detaining an armed female, later identified as Forshey, upon arrival on Third Avenue.
When asked if she was in possession of a firearm, Forshey reportedly reached behind her back for the weapon, but was instead taken into custody by deputies at gunpoint.
The gun was reportedly loaded and Forshey was in possession of two additional loaded magazines. The gun and magazines were seized by deputies.
Forshey was secured in handcuffs and transported to the county jail.
No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.
The incident remained under investigation by the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office.
