Trenton cops seize Tec-9 machine gun

SCOTT FROST , Staff Writer 09/14/2004

TRENTON -- Only days before automatic weapons would have become legal in 43 states, Trenton police seized a Tec-9 machine gun garnished with a red bandanna of the type worn by Bloods gangsters.

Police seized the machine gun following an armed robbery behind Klotz’s Bar off Summer Street shortly after midnight Saturday, Det. Sgt. Pedro Medina said yesterday.

Officers were in the area of Belvidere and Summer streets when they heard the sound of gunfire by the bar.

Police went to investigate and noticed the suspect running from the back of the bar with a red bandanna streaming from the magazine of his assault weapon.

As the officers pursued, the suspect, later identified as a 17-year-old Reservoir Street resident, dropped the gun.

Medina said the cops continued to chase the suspect, when they noticed a second weapon, a .45-caliber handgun, in the grass outside an abandoned house on the first block of Bellevue Avenue.

Police located the fleeing teen inside, Medina said.

Medina said the officers handcuffed the teen and drove him back to the bar, where one of the robbery victims was able to identify the suspect.

Police later learned the suspect stole the purses of two female victims in the back parking lot of the bar.

The victims told police the teen pointed both weapons during the robbery, demanding money and grabbing their purses, Medina said.

Medina said the officers also found the suspect in possession of a small amount of marijuana.

The serial number on the assault weapon had been filed off, police said.

Charged with armed robbery, drug offenses, hindering apprehension, resisting arrest and multiple weapons charges, including unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon during a drug offense, the teen was jailed in the Mercer County Youth Detention Center in Ewing.

Medina wouldn’t confirm if the suspect was an actual member of the Bloods gang.

"I’m sure it was referred to the gang unit," said Medina, who said the youth’s name resonated with gang activity around the city.

"It’s an automatic red flag, having the bandanna hanging from the magazine."

Couldn't make it through the first sentence.

We need to start an AR15.com Hall of Journalism Shame list that posts the names and contact information of shitty reporters who can't get their facts straight about guns and gun laws.

Lies. The AWB made those things illegal.

The criminals will listen to what we tell them, of course.

This is a good idea.

No, It's a DAMN good idea.

Maybe a special section, linked on the homepage. Not just the names listed, but every antigun article itself excerpted and critiqued.
