Police: Big Flats road rage investigation leads to weapons bust
BIG FLATS, N.Y. (WENY) -- A 58-year old Big Flats man is in custody and roughly 17 guns have been seized, along with silencers, a bayonet and more, after a police investigation stemming from an alleged road rage incident. According to the Chemung County Sheriff's Office, Daniel Llewellyn has been arrested on menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police say everything started on Sunday, Nov. 12th when Llewellyn was yelled at for driving too fast. Police say he got out of his vehicle, and displayed a handgun during an argument. On Wednesday, Nov. 15th, police say they stopped Llewellyn, arrested him, and subsequently found a handgun in his vehicle.
As a result, police say they obtained a search warrant for storage unit in Horseheads connected to Llewellyn. Police say they found handguns, assault weapons, and that Llewellyn is not licensed to possess firearms in New York State.
On top of that, many guns were equipped with silencers, flash suppressors, folding or telescopic stocks, a bayonet, or pistol grips, all of which police say are deemed non-New York State compliant. As a result of the search warrant, police say additional charges are expected.
Llewellyn was arraigned by the Big Flats Town Court and had his bail set at $50,000 cash or $100,000 property bond.
