Middle Village Man Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison for Pointing Gun at Cop, Possessing Cache of Weapons and Drugs

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.

Op-Ed: Double Down MTA, Queens Needs More Trains

Nov. 2, 2022 Op-Ed By Juan Ardila, Democratic Candidate for New York State Assembly District 37

Give credit where credit is due with the Interborough Express proposed by Gov. Hochul: For a governor to finally take notice of an underused freight-rail line running from Brooklyn into Queens, and pushing to convert that line to passenger rail, is an idea whose time has finally come. The IBX, as proposed, would run 14 miles through these two boroughs without going through Manhattan. The governor and the MTA, in other words, are taking a real interest in helping all New Yorkers with their daily commute, and not just those traveling to Manhattan.
