19-year old Davante Gregory of Jersey City and a juvenile have been arrested by the Hoboken Police Department. According to Detective / Lieutenant Jonathan Mecka, both individuals were charged with illegally possessing a handgun for an unlawful use for possession of hollow point bullets.
Det. / Lt. Mecka says the initial incident took place on July 6, 2022 in the area of 655 6th Street. On that date at approximately 9 pm, the Hoboken Police Department was investigating a vehicle with a potential handgun in it. During the on-scene investigation, the vehicle in question was towed and a search warrant was secured. A Glock .45 caliber handgun was recovered during the execution of the search warrant.
Mecka says over the last two months the Hoboken Police Department’s Investigation Bureau followed up on the case and developed probable cause to arrest and charge two individuals. Then over the last week, the Hoboken Police Department Streets Crimes Unit was able to arrest Gregory and process one juvenile on a delinquency compliant.
Both suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
