Man Caught For Illegally Entering Times Square Station In Possession of Loaded Gun
Entering the subway through an exit gate: illegal. Entering the subway through an exit gate in possession of a controlled substance and a loaded gun: very illegal. That's is how cops arrested Travis Marks of Virginia Friday evening at the Times Square subway station, NY1 reported. Police told Runnin' Scared that police were about to stop him for illegally entering the system. When they approached him, he threw a bag containing white powdery substance, trying to rid himself of it. Only after the man was already arrested did cops search him and find the gun.
The gun -- a 9 millimeter semi-automatic -- was in his waistband. The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m.
According to CBS New York, Marks faces charges of "criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance, theft of service and criminal trespass."
As NY1 also notes, this comes a week after police discovered that a man who they had arrested for jumping the turnstile at the 14th Street PATH station was also in possession of a loaded gun.
