Newark NJ Detectives Arrest Two on Handgun Possession Charges

Newark Illegal Handgun AttorneysNewark NJ law enforcement arrested two local men accused of illegally possessing firearms.

According to authorities, the Newark Police Department received a quality of life complaint at public housing located on Dayton Place in Newark, New Jersey. Detectives with the Newark Police Department Special Enforcement Bureau happened to be on patrol in the area, so they were sent to check on the complaint.

When the Newark NJ police officers got to the housing complex, they saw several men congregating. As the officers moved toward the group, one of the men began to walk away at a quick pace and reportedly threw something onto the ground.

Police officers eventually stopped the suspect and detained him while they searched the area for the item that he allegedly tossed away. Police then reportedly located a handgun.

The suspect, a 41-year-old male who lives in Newark NJ, was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with unlawful possession of a weapon.

The next day, Newark NJ detectives were on patrol in the area of Avon Avenue and Farley Avenue when they received a tip about a person carrying a gun. Police officers located the suspect and reportedly noticed him attempting to adjust a weapon concealed in his jacket.

When police searched the suspect, a 30-year-old man from Newark, they allegedly found him with a gun.

Police arrested the suspect and charged him with illegal possession of a handgun.

After the arrests were made, Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose issued a statement commending the detectives for taking action to remove “armed dangerous criminals” from the streets of Newark. Ambrose also noted that Newark detectives have arrested 66 people on gun charges so far this year.
