Associated Press, February 12, 2021

New York City police busted a packed party bus early Friday and arrested more than a dozen people after they were alerted to social media posts showing some passengers posing with firearms, police said.


Eight loaded handguns were recovered, along with about 60 rounds of ammunition, said Assistant Chief Miguel Iglesias of the NYPD’s detective bureau.

“I couldn’t tell you why there were so many firearms. Why are there so many firearms in New York City right now?” Iglesias said, noting that officers made 486 gun arrests last month, more than in any other January on record.
