NEW YORK — Cops from the 110 Precinct in Queens recovered a Mac-10 after they observed a driver making an illegal U-Turn earlier in July.
Anti-Crime Police Officer’s Ruotolo and Lamneck were on patrol when they stopped the driver at the intersection of 126 Street and 37 Avenue. When the police officers approached the black Mercedes Benz they smelled a strong odor of marijuana.
The officers ordered the driver out of the car and further investigation led to the loaded firearm being discovered inside the vehicle.
A loaded Mac-10, a large quantity of marijuana and narcotics were found and the 34-year-old man was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance and Criminal Possession of Marijuana.
