An anonymous tip from a concerned citizen led to the recovery of a loaded handgun from East 25th Street, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Sheriff’s detectives responded to the area of East 25th Street and 17th Avenue based on the tip on Monday night, Berdnik said.
A loaded 380 caliber handgun that was reported stolen out of South Carolina in 2013 was recovered by the detectives, authorities said.
“Every stolen loaded handgun recovered, is one less that could be a factor in a violent situation,” Berdnik said. “I want to commend the Detectives involved in this very productive operation.”
