“We recovered an AR-15 Assault Rifle, two handguns and eight loaded magazines- it was a lot of firepower for one guy to have in his car,” said Police Officer Lindquist.
“It was good to get it all off the streets.”
On Sunday June 25, Police Officers assigned to the 52 Precinct’s Anti-crime Team stopped a car at 211 Street and Wayne Avenue for a traffic infraction. They observed the driver in possession of a collapsible baton so they ordered him out of the vehicle. Subsequent investigation resulted in the seizure of three firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
