Johnson City man posts bail after major Broome County weapons bust

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A Johnson City man who was arrested for possessing an illegal arsenal of weapons, firearms and ammunition has posted bail.

Ramadan Abdullah, 65, posted bail Tuesday morning in Broome County Court.

At first, Broome County Judge Kevin Dooley did not accept a property bond offer, but he ultimately granted bail for Abdullah.

In June, police responded to the Gander Mountain on Harry L Drive for a shoplifting call.

Further investigation of his belongings lead police to a storage locker located at 1400 Campville Road in the Town of Union.

There, they discovered 4 loaded handguns, 8 assault weapons, 64 ammunition feeding devices, a loaded shotgun and 2 rifles along with thousands of rounds of ammunition.

Also seized were 50 caliber armor piercing incendiary rounds.

Police say none of the weapons were registered or licensed to Abdullah, making them illegal.

Abdullah remains out on bail until his trial scheduled for November.
