A man was arrested last week in Glen Cove for possession of a handgun, according to police.
On Aug. 20, Glen Cove detectives Brian Glennon and Eddy Linares pulled over a vehicle on The Place in Glen Cove. Inside the vehicle was 32-year-old Kashawn Jackson of Hempstead, who police said the detectives knew was wanted for a violation of federal probation and a pending domestic violence charge from the New York City Police Department.
At the time of his arrest, the detectives said they found a loaded 9 mm handgun wrapped in a Halloween mask inside the vehicle. The defendant was charged with second-, third- and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm and violation of probation.
The defendant will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead.
Detective Lieutenant John Nagle of the Glen Cove Police praised the joint efforts of the NYPD, Federal Probation and the entire Glen Cove detective division in making this arrest.
“We all worked together sharing information which was used by the Glen Cove detective division to make this arrest and to take another illegal handgun off the streets of Glen Cove,” said Nagle.
