Man Arrested in Boscobel on Gun Possession Charges

A man living in Boscobel was arrested last week after the Boscobel Police Department received a call from a resident who said she feared for the safety of her and her children due to the violent nature of her live-in boyfriend. Boscobel Police Chief Jaden McCullick says an investigation revealed that 32 year old Phillip Robinson had been living at a Pearl Street residence in Boscobel for approximately four months. During the investigation, evidence was discovered which led officers to believe there was a firearm on the property belonging to Robinson, who is a convicted felon not allowed to possess firearms.

The Department executed a search warrant for a portion of the property and located the firearm, along with ammunition and drug paraphernalia.

Robinson was arrested without incident and taken to the Grant County Jail where he was held on a probation hold and charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm.  The Richland-Iowa-Grant Drug Task Force and the Wisconsin DNR assisted at the scene of the search warrant.
