Caught on Camera: Video Surveillance Cops Collar 2 on Weapons Charges
THE BRONX — Housing and video surveillance cops partnered to apprehend two Bronx men on weapons charges in Claremont, the NYPD reported.
Brandon Cordero, 17, and Jovan William, 22, were each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
At about 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, a detective assigned to a video surveillance unit allegedly spotted William handing a gun to Cordero outside the high-rise Gourverneur Morris Houses at 1372 Washington Ave., the NYPD stated. William entered a livery cab, and cops stopped and arrested him without incident minutes later.
Cameras allegedly recorded Williams as he entered a first-floor apartment at the Morris Houses, the firearm visible in his rear pants pocket, police said. Cops responded to the apartment, where they arrested Williams and recovered a loaded .38-caliber Ruger revolver and a bullet-resistant vest.
