Detroit, MI – A convicted felon on probation for one of his many firearms-related charges is wanted on yet another gun possession offense after he posted an Instagram Live video of himself showing off his Glock handgun.
The first clip showed Trimble sitting alone in a vehicle with a black pistol initially resting on the seat next to him, according to court records.
“You know I gotta keep my G-lock,” he said at one point, picking up the firearm and tapping the camera with it, WDIV reported.
The second video began just after the first one ended, according to investigators.
Investigators said Trimble showed off the base plate of the Glock’s magazine and the firearm’s barrel before finally declaring, “Alright, I’m done with this Live,” and ending the clip.
According to court documents, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives experts said the weapon Trimble was holding in the livestreams was either a Glock 27 Gen 5 handgun or a Glock 26 Gen 5 handgun, WDIV reported.
The firearm was equipped with a full-sized Glock magazine, which is capable of holding up to 15 rounds.
Investigators said they also believe Trimble violated the terms of his probation sentence by leaving the state of Michigan without approval on Oct. 10, 2021, WDIV reported.
He now faces a new charge of felon in possession of a firearm.
Trimble’s adult criminal history began in October of 2013, when he was arrested for receiving and concealing a stolen motor vehicle and unlawful driving away of an automobile, WDIV reported.
He was given two years of probation for that offense.
Trimble was sentenced to six months in jail and three more years of probation for felony retail theft between $5,000 and $10,000 the following year, WDIV reported.
He pleaded no contest to felony retail fraud and guilty to obstructing justice and felony resisting in January of 2016 and was ordered to serve one year in the Oakland County Jail.
Just less than one year later, he was sentenced to 498 days in jail in Hamilton, Indiana on a felony theft offense, WDIV reported.
Trimble pleaded guilty to first-degree felony retail fraud in February of 2018 and was ordered to serve 18 months to 15 years with the Michigan Department of Corrections.
He was sentenced to two years of probation in March of 2021 due to convictions of felon in possession of a firearm, felon carrying a concealed weapon, and first-degree stealing or retaining a financial transaction device for retail fraud.
He was still serving that sentence when he recorded the Instagram Live videos, according to court documents.
