Carrying a Concealed Weapon

You can be charged with carrying a concealed weapon, even if the weapon is not on your person directly. All that would have to be proven is that it was indeed hidden so that it was not noticed by others.

A weapon in this context is a term with a broad definition and is basically applied to anything that can do harm and is being concealed for unlawful purposes.

The punishment being convicted of concealing a weapon can be up to 5 years imprisonment, but other charges usually accompany this charge which may up the tariff.
