Gunning for goods

A goon arrested on July 16 really needed a lesson on how firearms work — he was arrested with a fake gun, but plenty of real bullets.

Police said the 20-year-old suspect approached a man at the corner of Avenue M and Utica Avenue at 2:50 pm and flashed the butt of his fake firearm.

He then threatened to shoot his victim “with two bullets” if he didn’t hand over his watch and cell phone.

The thief made off with his victim’s property — but didn’t get far.

Cops caught up with him a short time later and recovered the stolen goods and fake gun as they charged him with robbery. Thirteen rounds of ammunition for a .32 caliber pistol were found in his bag, officials said.
