Gonna be tough on crime? De Blasio aide arrested with gun was riding in SUV that reeked of marijuana

De Blasio aide busted with gun in car

Suspended de Blasio aide, Reagan Stevens

I’m sure anti-gun advocate de Blasio will not let his aide plea bargain her way out of this gun crime, right?

From NY Post: The Mayor de Blasio aide charged with riding around with a loaded gun was nabbed in an SUV that reeked of marijuana, according to a criminal complaint.

Reagan Stevens, 42, was in the back seat of the 2002 Infiniti when she and two others were allegedly caught with the loaded 9mm Hi-Point semiautomatic pistol tucked in a green velvet bag in the glove compartment, court papers said.

Cops noticed there was a “strong odor of marijuana” wafting from the SUV, which was double parked in Jamaica, Queens, near the scene of a shooting Saturday night.

Stevens — whose mother, Deborah Stevens, is a Queens Criminal Court judge and whose stepfather is an acting Queens Supreme Court justice — works as a deputy director in the mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.

The Bay Ridge resident manages youth and strategic initiatives, including implementing a state law that will raise the age at which kids can be prosecuted as adults for nonviolent crimes from 16 to 18.

The gun, which had its serial number scratched off, was loaded with two rounds of ammunition, and a spent round was found on the driver’s side floor.

Cops also found a paintball gun and carbon dioxide cartridges from the rear cargo area of the vehicle and a gravity knife in 25-year-old driver Caesar Forbes’ waistband.

Another man, Montel Hughes, 24, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was charged with marijuana possession after cops allegedly found five Ziploc bags of pot in his coat pocket, the complaint said. A gravity knife was also recovered from the pocket of his pants.

Stevens, Hughes and Forbes were each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. Forbes and Hughes were charged with criminal possession of a weapon related to the gravity knives and Forbes was ticketed for double parking.

Stevens was suspended without pay.

Their arrests followed a burst of five gunshots that activated an NYPD ShotSpotter gunfire-detection device at 9:42 p.m. Saturday at 174th Street and 109th Avenue, sources said.

The trio was parked near the corner of 177th Street and 106th Avenue and arrested around 10:25 p.m.

  2. Now that I’ve gotten over my laughing fit . . . .

    So I wonder whether anyone of these people will be charged with an extra federal felony for scratching out the gun’s serial number. Guns that have defaced serial numbers also frequently come with another name: Stolen Property. There are a lot of questions that have yet to be answered.

    Will she worm her way out of this because of her family connections?
    Who was shooting at whom?
    Was this a drug deal gone bad?
    and . . . .
    Oh yes.
    What was she doing I the back seat?

    • It looks like she was doing a little “moonlighting”. She must just be drumming up business for “the Neighborhood”. I’d trade any one of these schmucks for the mafia.

  4. I’ll be it was “Montel” that had the “Hi-Point. I hope Montel hasn’t been in Nevada lately. I’d hate to see “Truck” lose a fine firearm.

  5. “DO AS I SAY AND DONT DO AS MY DAUGHTER DOES?” Is this what she’s been doing all along? FOR HOW LONG? And what’s going to happen now? Oh, I know, slap her hand and give’r probation, it was the first time she got caught, seems she is “on the move” with all the addresses listed, and the company she keeps, wonder why, anyhow De Blasio will reinstate her, she’ll have a new job, and a new address.

    • I can see it now: “Montel, take this Hi-Point and tell we dindu nuffin”. “Er, yes officer, we’re just down here on a fact-finding junket for the department”.

  6. True friendship, as I understand, all 3 were Charged for the weapon because not one of them would claim ownership. So that means that the true owner let his/her fellow playa’s take the ride too…weak gangsta thugs. In Stovepipes Book of Ethical Standards – Man up.

  8. I keep trying to figure out how I can “retire” from my REGULAR public service sector job (public school teacher) and snag a job like this a little higher up–Reagan Stevens…this DiBlasio aide (I’m also wondering where and if she earned her MS+90?) : I’d like to get some easy-score drugs—like free aspirin or an occassional amoxicillin (HA HA) as needed to make me feel better in my older age of constant working days….& maybe a gun or two to make me feel safe–or rather a security guard due to my exaulted position?…. to help me wade through “all you plebian regulars and your kids…..” I think I should also benefit in the millions in a year or 3 or more when I retire from this “Retirement Job” due to astute connections in my government service….just like all our ex-presidents, ex- Senators and ex- local reps……..etc……OH….and also, I want government-paid health care benefits for life…and much much more for just being elected to this or that “public service” position for a couple of years…….

  9. Well, suspending her without pay is a given. Following that, she will have a hearing if her supervisor(s) move to terminate her employment. The City has to do every last jot and tittle by the book to cover itself.
    The fact that her mother’s a judge really doesn’t mean anything: Judges have supervisors and peer review, also.
    Guess she’d better lawyer up.

    As for the Horse’s Ass of a Mayor we’re stuck with for the next three years and nine months, he’s more than proved his judgment is not to be trusted. Not To Worry: The cigar-chomping players will make sure to pick a WORSE candidate the next go-round!
