The 7 Line, a manufacturer of non-traditional Mets apparel, just got some free publicity courtesy of the New York City Police Department
On its Facebook page this afternoon, the NYPD posted a message describing a recent Queens drug bust, where officers from the 103rd Precinct arrested a man for possession of two loaded guns and crack cocaine.
Along with the crime description, the NYPD also posted a photo of the recovered weapons and drugs, and the NYPD members responsible for the bust decked out in 7 Line gear.
According to the post, on February 1, a sergeant and two officers responded to a call of shots fired. While canvassing the area where the suspects possibly had fled, they saw a man exit a Ferndale Avenue home with a backpack, then return to the same house without the backpack.
They stopped and questioned the man, and recovered the backpack, which contained a loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun, a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun and 1.5 ounces of crack cocaine. An additional 179 rounds of ammunition were also found inside the house.
The 26-year-old suspect was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
