Jury selection began Wednesday for a man accused of unlawful weapons possession.
Maurquice Jones, 23, of Trenton is accused of possessing a black, .45-caliber Glock handgun and a revolver, in a taxi cab.
Police had received a tip the night of March 27, 2017 that two armed men had gone into a cab in the Wilbur neighborhood.
Officers pulled the taxi over on the 700 block of East State Street, and found Jones and his co-defendant Dashaun Brown, 23, making suspicious movements near the front seat.
The officers saw a revolver near Browns foot, and after a search of the car found the handgun.
Brown has since pleaded guilty and is currently serving a five year prison sentence, with three years of parole ineligibility.
Opening statements of the trial are expected to take place next week.
