Bullock, Jones, and Perez were all taken into custody at 9:22 p.m. yesterday from the area of 43rd Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard. Officers conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of 43rd Street and Kennedy Boulevard after observing a motor vehicle violation.

As officers conducted their investigation, they determined the vehicle was occupied by the above three individuals with Perez as the driver, Jones as the front passenger, and Bullock as the rear passenger.

As one officer was speaking with Perez, another officer spoke with Jones and observed multiple open containers of alcoholic beverage at his feet.

As another officer made contact with Bullock, he observed him to be very nervous as he appeared to be making furtive movements with his hands. Upon closer inspection, the officer was able to observe, in plain view, a semiautomatic handgun on the floor of the rear passenger compartment.

All occupants were then ordered out of the vehicle and a search of the vehicle led to the recovery of a fully loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun and a backpack belonging to Jones which contained cocaine and narcotic paraphernalia.

None of the occupants claimed ownership of the handgun, which was determined to be equipped with a fully loaded high-capacity magazine and therefore were all charged with possession it.

A search incident to Bullock’s arrest led to the recovery of marijuana.
