A Middle Village man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for pointing a loaded assault rifle at an undercover NYPD detective– as well as stashing a cache of weapons and drugs on his property.
Julin Liriano, 36, was sentenced at Manhattan Supreme Court Tuesday having pleaded guilty to weapons and drug charges for the Oct. 7, 2020 incident.
Liriano, according to the NYC Special Narcotics Prosecutor’s Office, was outside his 85-25 Elliot Ave. home at around 6:45 p.m. when he cocked his rifle and pointed it at an undercover NYPD detective who was conducting a drug surveillance operation with the DEA’s New York Drug Enforcement Task Force (NYDETF). The detective was sitting in an unmarked vehicle.
