During a traffic check on Long Island, authorities say they discovered a ghost gun and drugs in the possession of a 22-year-old man who is now facing charges in connection with the incident.
According to the Nassau County Police, Shemar Freire, who is from Union City, New Jersey, was pulled over by police at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Monday, December 5, while he drove in Inwood, close to the intersection of Sheridan and Doughty boulevards.
It is said that law enforcement officers detained him owing to the overly heavy window tint on his vehicle.
During the subsequent inquiry, the police stated that they discovered a loaded semi-automatic ghost pistol along with marijuana inside the vehicle.
The lack of serial numbers and the fact that ghost guns are often constructed at home from kits renders them impossible to track down. Since April 2022, they have been against the law in the state of New York.
The arrest of Freire on multiple counts of criminal possession of a weapon, as well as unlawful possession of cannabis and violations of vehicle and traffic legislation, took place without any incident.
On Tuesday, December 6th, he was supposed to appear in First District Court in Hempstead for his arraignment.
