JAMESTOWN – A Buffalo teenager is in police custody after he was arrested last week for possessing a loaded handgun.
The Jamestown Police Department says 19 year-old Kori Robinson of Buffalo was arrested just before 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 29 after a police patrol unit attempted to stop a vehicle on Crescent St. for a traffic violation. Police say Robinson was operating the vehicle and allegedly got out of the car and fled on foot after pulling over. Police eventually caught him after a short foot pursuit. Following an investigation, police found that Robinson allegedly had a loaded 9mm handgun that had been reported stolen during a burglary in Jamestown last October.
Robinson was charged with criminal possession of a weapon (2nd degree), criminal possession of stolen property (4th degree), and obstructing governmental administration, along with several other traffic and vehicle violations.
Robinson was also arrested earlier in the month on Dec. 14 for allegedly trafficking crack cocaine.
