A group of suspected firearms dealers accused of running guns in Brooklyn were hit with a staggering 556-count indictment today. Prosecutors say they were responsible for trafficking hundreds of pistols, revolvers, automatic and semi-automatic weapons throughout the city.
According to Gothamist, Michael Brewer Quick, Aliya Camille Dowell, Rodney Cantrell Brewer, Emmanuel Caswell, Marcus White and Albert Ellis Pless worked together to transport the guns from Georgia to New York City. The weapons, which included MAC-11, AR-15, two TEC-9s and 151 handguns, were then sold to an undercover cop near the 69th Precinct in Canarsie.
The most unique find? The pink handgun you see above.
Quick, Dowell, and Brewer are currently in custody in Brooklyn, while the rest await extradition back to Georgia. All were indicted on conspiracy charges, and four will face charges for criminal possession of firearm.
As for who would want or need a pink handgun, there's always one person to consider.
