Darion Simms to go on trial in November; accused of three break-ins at Quincy gun shop

A Quincy man, facing numerous weapons charges after allegedly breaking into a Quincy gun shop three times, has pleaded Not Guilty and will go on trial in November.

Darion Simms was recently arraigned in Adams County Circuit Court, where he entered that Not Guilty plea. He was indicted in late August on nine counts, including two Class X counts of Aggravated Possession of stolen firearms, and three counts each of burglary and possession of a stolen firearm. In all, prosecutors say that Simms may have had up to 30 stolen weapons. The alleged burglaries happened in June and July at Prevailing Arms, in the 500 block of South 9th Street. Simms was picked up by Quincy police after allegedly being seen leaving the store around 2:30 AM on July 23rd.

Simms is in the Adams County Jail and if convicted, could spend up to 50 years in prison. His trial is set for November 5th.
