Cops bust two gun lovers for firearms violations

Cops seized seven firearms and shot two gun-loving ex-cons back to prison in the Bayview district this week, police said.

On Tuesday, cops visited a Bayview man’s home and found four guns “neatly stashed in a cardboard box, along with a lot of live rounds, extra magazines, a holster a gun case and a gun owner’s manual,” police said.

“You never know when you may need a trouble-shooting guide,” police said.

The ex-con, who spent some time in jail for gun-related charges, was ordered as part of his probation to not have any firearms, police said.

“This ex-con, who obviously did not learn his lesson, is back in jail for a re-do,” police said.

Two days later, cops secured a search warrant for another gun lover’s home, waited near the property until the suspect drove up, then knocked on the door, police said. They had to use a large pry bar and battering ram to get inside, where they found two people — but not the suspect.

The suspect fled through the back door, but was found “casually walking down the street on an adjacent block,” police said.

A search of the suspect’s room yielded two handguns and narcotics, police said. A third gun was found in the backyard, police said.

The gun lover was booked, they said.
