A Brooklyn sergeant’s work while investigating a series of burglaries led to an arrest of a man in possession of 32 pounds of marijuana. On Friday, June 2, Sergeant Patrick Quigley, the Field Intelligence Officer (FIO) of the 76 Precinct, was investigating a burglary pattern when he enlisted the aid of one of the precinct’s neighborhood coordinating officers (NCO). Police Officer Patrick Walker was assigned to that area of precinct as an NCO and had many neighborhood contacts that could help the investigation.
The two officers decided to patrol the location on foot and visit local business owners. As the two were patrolling they observed a drug transaction take place in front of 232 Warren Street. Sergeant Quigley and Officer Walker immediately jumped into action and arrested one of the two men, but the second man went inside an apartment. A search warrant was obtained for the location and over 22 pounds of marijuana and a loaded handgun were recovered. The two men were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana.
