A St. Paul man was charged with possession of ammunition by an ineligible person (prior crime of violence) after a traffic stop in Hastings on April 11. 

At approximately 2:44 a.m., an officer with the Hastings Police Department was on patrol when he observed a vehicle parked near a gas station and ran a routine license plate check. The vehicle came back as stolen out of Hennepin County.

The officer eventually asked the occupants to step out of the vehicle. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, a backpack was found that contained four rounds of ammunition and mail containing the defendant’s name, Anthony Dashawn Bond, 44. The defendant confirmed the backpack was his. He was a passenger in the vehicle. 

A review of his criminal history shows a conviction for a crime of violence that disqualifies him from possession of ammunition.  

Charges were filed April 13.
