On September 6 at around 11.45 a.m., 14 Division Major Crime Unit (MCU) officers executed a search warrant at a storage unit on Jefferson Ave. in Liberty Village.

It’s alleged that a 12-gauge Winchester pump action loaded with four rounds of ammunition and a sawed off Soviet SK5 semi-automatic rifle loaded with five rounds of ammunition were seized.

Police also recovered two knives and 81.36 grams of cocaine.

A 17-year-old boy is facing 14 charges.

They include two counts of unauthorized possession of a prohibited firearm, two counts each of breach of prohibition order for firearms and ammunition and failure to comply with recognizance and a Youth Criminal Justice Act order.

He is scheduled to make a court appearance on September 11.

Supt. Neil Corrigan said his officers are committed to getting rid of illegal guns.

“They are working round-the-clock,” he added. “The community has been very helpful, also, and we are grateful for that support. We can’t do it alone.”
