New York Man Held on Gun Charges in Massachusetts

Police3PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police in western Massachusetts have arrested a New York man on gun charges after wrestling a gun from him.

Anthony Robertson of Schenectady was charged by Pittsfield police with carrying a loaded .357 magnum, which was reported stolen from New York.

State police received a 911 call of a man with a gun outside a residence. Pittsfield police say officers went to the home and asked the 32-year-old Robertson to put up his hands, but he raised only one hand.

After a struggle, police took the loaded gun from Robertson’s waistband.

He was charged with carrying a loaded firearm without a license, defacing a firearm serial number and other charges.

It was not known Sunday if he’s represented by a lawyer. He’s being held on $10,000 bail and is due to be arraigned Monday.

    Oh, he’s represented by a lawyer for sure . It’s what we do here. Most cases are 150 bucks, which never gets paid anyway. Neither do their probation fees, warrent fees etc. So we all pay…., Indirectly, of course. 98 percent that get arrested have free lawyers paid by the state and usually they’re collecting too….. Do the math. ………We’re losing.

        Spfld thugs shoot each other but they get up and walk, thumb, hop, crawl, hail a taxi or have a cop drive them to the ER where they’re treated and released. This guy is wandering around with a .357 magnum – don’t think the thugs in Spfld would be moving much, let alone walking, if this was the weapon used for target practice every weekend.
