Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that a Bronx man has been indicted on multiple weapons possession charges for illegally having five handguns, an ammunition feeding device, and high-capacity magazines in his car.


        District Attorney Clark said, “The defendant was double parked on a bus lane in a crowded area when NYPD Officers found a loaded pistol under the driver’s seat and four semi-automatic pistols and ammunition feeding devices in the trunk of the car. These weapons were packaged and ready to sell, but thankfully the defendant was apprehended. We will not tolerate anyone bringing guns into the Bronx. We have suffered far too many shootings this year and we must do all it takes to prevent gun violence in the Bronx.”


         District Attorney Clark said the defendant, Tyrell Livingston, 28, of 355 East 143rd Street, was arraigned today on six counts of second-degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon, 15 counts of third-degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon, five counts of Criminal Possession of a Firearm, five counts of fourth-degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon, third-degree Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Violations of the Vehicle and Traffic Law and Possession of Ammunition before Bronx Supreme Court Justice George Villegas. The defendant was remanded and is due back in court on March 22, 2021.


According to the investigation, on November 18, 2020 in front of 436 East 149th Street, Livingston was in a 2007 Mercedes Benz with dark tinted windows that was double-parked in an active bus lane when NYPD Officers approached him and told him to move the car. The defendant told them he did not have his license on him and that it was suspended for failing to answer a summons. As Officers proceeded to arrest him, they found under the driver’s seat a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol, loaded with seven rounds. The defendant’s vehicle was taken to the 40th Precinct and during an inventory search, Officers found one .9 mm Taurus Pistol with three magazines, a .9 mm Glock with fifteen cartridges in the magazine, a .9 mm Taurus pistol containing two magazines, and a .9mm Millennium pistol inside a backpack in the trunk of the defendant’s car. Officers also found a drum feeder with 41 .40 mm cartridges, 14 .9mm cartridges, one magazine, and one high-capacity magazine.


          The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Kamens of Trial Bureau 50, under the supervision of Lawrence Piergrossi, Chief of Trial Bureau 50, and under the overall supervision of James Brennan, Deputy Chief of the Trial Division, and Theresa Gottlieb, Chief of the Trial Division. District Attorney Clark thanked arresting NYPD Officer Bismal Tineo of the 40th Precinct.


An indictment is an accusatory instrument and not proof of a defendant’s guilt.
