Guns, Explosives Found in Crown Heights Apartment

It seemed like routine fire, in a non-descript little apartment in Brooklyn, but what firefighters found was anything but routine.

They found enough firepower to arm a small platoon. Rifles, semi-automatic handguns, shotguns and ammunition, even grenades and sticks of dynamite were found inside a second floor apartment on the corner of Buffalo and Atlantic in Crown Heights.

It was shocking to both firefighters and neighbors. “It’s just crazy. I can’t believe all that in there on this block,” said Hakeem, a neighbor.

50-year-old Eric Brown is facing multiple weapons charges for allegedly having all of that inside his Crown Heights apartment.

    Ehhh…the guy is a retired Cop with a hoarding complex. Not really worried about him using those weapons to attack anyone nor is he a “Criminal” in my eyes since the US Constitution allows for him to have these guns even though the state law doesn’t. I mean he probably does not need to have live grenades and dynamite but he can keep the guns and ammo.

    “on the corner of Buffalo and Atlantic in Crown Heights” that’s not exactly Crown Heights.

    Funny, my copy of the constitution is missing the clause that says “void in the five boroughs of NYC”.

      So are you saying this news site should not cover anything north of the 770 side of Eastern Parkway?
