PORT RICHMOND — A man was convicted of gun possession after officers found a loaded weapon underneath his bed while executing a search warrant in 2013, District Attorney Michael McMahon announced.
Quixotay Moody, 33, of Port Richmond, was convicted of criminal possession of a weapon by Judge Mario Mattei on Tuesday after a two-week trial. He faces up to 15 years in prison, McMahon said.
"The facts of this case proved that, beyond any reasonable doubt, the illegal firearm found in that apartment belonged to this defendant," McMahon said in a statement.
On Sep. 7, 2013, police executed a search warrant on Moody's Avenue B apartment and found a loaded .9mm Luger semi-automatic under the bedroom mattress Moody was lying on, McMahon said.
Moody was also arrested twice in 2015, once for gun possession in Staten Island and the second for armed robbery in Brooklyn, according to online court records.
He's scheduled to be sentenced on April 19.
