The 71st Police Precinct, which covers a majority of Crown Heights, took another illegal firearm off the streets of Crown Heights Sunday night.
The gun was recovered during an arrest being made by the Anti-Crime and Neighborhood Coordination Officers.
The handgun was loaded at the time.
Just last week, two illegal handguns were also recovered during a series of gang related arrests in the area.
Excellent job last night by our Anti-Crime and Neighborhood Coordination Officers arresting another armed individual in possession of a loaded illegal firearm #onelessgun #nypdprotecting pic.twitter.com/7JRrMeS5Ss
