Syracuse, NY — Three Syracuse residents were charged Tuesday with having a high-capacity rifle magazine under this year’s NY SAFE Act.

Blair Dion Odom, 20, of 157 Baldwin Ave.; Diamond Y. Ross-Hardy, 29, of 125 Stinard Ave. and Lloyd R. Brown, 31, of 125 Stinard Ave. were all charged with misdemeanor unlawful possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device, as well as unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. They were all arrested and sent to the Onondaga County Justice Center jail.  

The arrests came during a probation department search of 125 Stinard St., said Sgt. Tom Connellan. Authorities confiscated a high-capacity magazine and 24 rounds of rifle ammunition. No weapon was found.

People on probation are subject to periodic search. It was during one of those searches the high-capacity magazine was found. The law prohibits magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds.

Connellan said this is one of the first arrests in Syracuse under the new SAFE Act.
