Yesterday at approximately 11:16 a.m., Secaucus Police Officer David Delseni conducted a motor vehicle stop in the parking lot of the Red Roof Inn, located at 15 Meadowlands Parkway, of a guest of the hotel.
During the motor vehicle stop, Delseni discovered that the driver, Quinterious Jones, was in possession of a handgun. He was arrested after a search of his vehicle uncovered a loaded Glock 27 .40 caliber handgun.
The handgun was loaded with a 16-round magazine and also had a round inthe chamber. Additionally, some hollow point ammunition was also seized.
“This is another example how proactively policing troublesome areas will continue to suppress violators of the law. I applaud the police officer for his proactivity, which directly led to the seizure of another loaded handgun,” Miller added.
Jones, 23, of Alabama, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a high-capacity magazine, possession of hollow point ammunition, and unlawful possession of handgun ammunition.
He was processed and remanded to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
