Syracuse police tell us a suspicious person complaint led them to an arrest and recovery of a loaded handgun.
Officers say they approached a male matching the description of a suspicious person with a handgun reported in the vicinity of LeMoyne Avenue. He fled on foot, but was soon apprehended. The 15-year-old male was taken into custody when officers found a loaded .40 caliber handgun in his possession that had been stolen. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon among other charges and taken to Hillbrook Detention Facility. He will be seen in Family Court at a later date.
