Cops: Man with drugs displays fake gun in Greenport

A Greenport man was arrested after he reportedly displayed a fake gun Saturday night while he was in possession of drugs at a Greenport home. 

According to police, 33-year-old Roberto E. Banchez-Reyes was a home on Ludlam Place around 10 p.m. Saturday when he showed a gun. After police said they found drugs on him, authorities later said the gun was found to be a fake one.

At an arraignment Sunday, Judge Rudolph Breuer said Mr. Banchez-Reyes was in possession of cocaine and marijuana. Speaking through a translator Mr. Banchez-Reyes said he did not wish to be represented by a lawyer, despite the judge’s firm warning that he faces up to a year in jail.

Mr. Banchez-Reyes was arrested on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.

No charges in relation to the gun were reported.
