Police find gun made to look like AK-47

ALBANY -- Three people are behind bars following an incident on Catherine Street last week.

On November 19, officers responded to reports of a man with a weapon near Catherine Street and South Hawk Street. According to the call, an occupant of a sedan had what appeared to be an AK-47 style rifle.

Shortly after the call, authorities located the car parked in front of 273 Livingston Avenue, where three people came out of the house and got into the vehicle. Officers stopped the car and searched the home, where they found a loaded rifle that had been altered to look like an AK-47.

John Alston, 20, Nasif Jackson, 25, and Malika Perkins, 26, were all charged on weapons and other charges.
