A Sag Harbor Village Police officer on routine patrol shortly after 10 p.m. on Monday night stopped a driver who he observed make an improper turn on Main Street — and ultimately arrested him on felony weapons and drug charges.
According to a press release issued Tuesday morning, Sag Harbor Village Police said Deandre M. Owens had a loaded 9-millimeter handgun, which had had its serial number removed, as well as more than two pounds of marijuana. They charged Mr. Owens, 19, of Calverton, with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana, both felonies; fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor; and multiple traffic violations.
Mr. Owens was arraigned Tuesday morning in Sag Harbor Village Justice Court and was remanded to Suffolk County Jail in Riverhead in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.
Mr. Owens’s passenger, Niekko, Massicci, 20, of Calverton, who was wanted on an active bench warrant out of Riverhead Town Justice Court, was also arrested Monday night. He was turned over to the Riverhead Town Police.
