WOW! Police busted a high ranking member of corrupt Democrat NY Bill de Blasio’s staff, and charged her with multiple gun crimes, after responding to five gunshots detected by New York’s ShotSpotter bullet-detection system, and finding Reagan Stevens, a loaded handgun and two men with knives at that location.
Reagan Stevens, a “high-level deputy director in Mayor de Blasio’s Office of Criminal Justice”, was busted over the weekend and charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and criminal possession of a defaced weapon. Montell Hughes and Caesar Forbes were also at the scene and found to be carrying knives.
Defacing a firearm to prevent identification in NY is a HUGE crime – a felony – “Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree” – which is punishable by up to seven years in prison!
“Guns = Prison” – In fact, back in 2006 the mandatory prison sentence for anyone busted with a loaded, illegal weapon in NY was increased to 3.5 years.
Not only was Reagan Stevens busted and charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and criminal possession of a defaced weapon, but the weapon apparently had just been fired as well, which should bring additional charges.
Reagan Stevens — the Office’s Deputy Director of Youth and Strategic Initiatives — was busted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon after cops found the loaded 9mm gun in the glovebox of the 2002 Infiniti double-parked on the corner of 177th Street and 106th Avenue in Jamaica around 10:25 p.m., cops said.
That means that not only was having the firearm a crime, but that the weapon apparently had the serial number scratched off, or removed in such a way that prevented the identification of the firearm from being able to be read.
it appears that the gun had been fired, as there was only 3 bullets left in the magazine that holds 8 bullets, and at least one shell casing was found inside their vehicle.
Reagan Stevens should probably see some jail time, though de Blasio and the corrupt Democrat Culture of Corruption will undoubtedly sweep the whole thing under the rug and make the crimes of his staff disappear.
Prediction: Nothing will come from this as de Blasio will pull strings to drop the charges like nothing ever happened – though we know it did.
A high-level deputy director in Mayor de Blasio’s Office of Criminal Justice was arrested on gun charges this weekend, police say.
Reagan Stevens, the deputy director of Youth and Strategic Initiatives, was charged along with two men after officers found the trio in a vehicle with a loaded handgun late Saturday night, according to police.
Officers were responding to ShotSpotter, the NYPD’s bullet-detection system, near the corner of 177th Street and 106th Avenue in Jamaica when police say they found the “suspicious” vehicle double-parked nearby.
The officers found the loaded 9mm handgun in a glove compartment, according to police, who said the weapon holds an eight-round clip but that only three rounds were remaining. Police said it wasn’t immediately clear if the gun had been recently fired.
Stevens, 42, was charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and criminal possession of a defaced weapon, as were the two men, identified by police as 24-year-old Montell Hughes and 25-year-old Caesar Forbes.
Hughes and Forbes were allegedly carrying knives at the time.
Police haven’t said who the gun or vehicle are registered to.
UPDATE: Police released more information about the arrest of Mayor de Blasio’s deputy director, Reagan Stevens, saying that there was a “strong odor of marijuana” coming from the vehicle.
And get this… Reagan Stevens is/was the “Deputy Director, Youth & Strategic Initiatives, Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice”, and was previously the “Deputy Director, Behavioral Health and Criminal Justice Task Force, New York City Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice”.
That’s pretty fucking sad, but pretty much on par and typical for Democrat’s “Do as I say, Not as I do” mentality.
