NYPD: Fake fire marshal took gun from station

Associated Press

January 31, 2011

NEW YORK — The New York City police commissioner says a man with a long history of impersonating law enforcement pretended to be a fire marshal, talked his way into a police station and made off with at least one weapon.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly says Ronald DeShields took at least one police weapon from the 105th Precinct in Queens on Jan. 15. He later returned the weapon to a 90th Precinct gun buyback program and got $100 from the department.

He was charged with possessing stolen property. Police say he was also suspected of taking a second weapon missing from the same precinct; that gun has not been located.

DeShields is being held at Rikers Island. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney. —Copyright 2011 Associated Press
