What began as a drug investigation led to the arrests of two local men who Clifton police said stole a gun during a burglary.
City detectives arrested Ehab Hassan, 22, and Shelzen Murati, 35, after a weeks-long investigation and charged them with burglary and weapons possession, among other offenses, Detective Lt. Robert Bracken said Wednesday.
The pair took other valuables along with the handgun – which hadn’t yet been recovered – during the Sept. 10 break-in on Hudson Street, Bracken said.
Police arrested Shelzen when he showed up for work on Tuesday. Ehab surrendered on Nov. 1.
