Gun stolen in Alabama recovered in Newburgh

NEWBURGH – A 9 mm semi-automatic handgun that was reported stolen on April 28, 2011 in DeKalb County, Alabama has been recovered in Newburgh and city police charged a Newburgh man with criminal possession of a weapon.

City police were called to 48 Carpenter Avenue about noon time on February 7 for a report of a domestic dispute and as they arrived, they saw Deon Patterson, 18, fleeing on foot. As officers pursued him, he pulled the gun from his waistband and threw it on the ground.  Patterson was apprehended and the gun was recovered.

It was then determined that he was not connected to the domestic incident. No one was injured in either case.

Patterson was also charged with criminal possession of stolen property.
