Port Authority Police: PATH Turnstile-Jumper Arrested, Had Loaded Gun
" NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police say a man arrested for jumping the turnstile at a PATH train station had a gun loaded with hollow-point bullets.

Port Authority spokesman Al Della Fave says Port Authority officers Matt Vogelman and Pat Carroll were on duty at the 14th Street station around 4:30 a.m. Friday when they saw a man jumping the turnstile.

The officers noticed a bulge in the man’s waistband. Police say the man tried to flee, but the officers grabbed him.

Della Fave says the man had a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets.

“It’s amazing that an individual carrying that kind of weapon would choose to jump a turnstile,” Della Fave told 1010 WINS.

The suspect, 36-year-old Rubin Sanabria, was arrested on charges including resisting arrest, weapon possession and theft of service "
