Embattled Democrat Mayor Lovely Warren was hit with numerous criminal charges on Friday, related to firearms and child endangerment.
A grand jury indicted Warren and husband Timothy Granison following a cocaine bust at the couple’s residence in May.
“Both are charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a felony, and two counts each of endangering the welfare of a child and failure to lock/secure firearms in a dwelling, both misdemeanors; according to a statement from the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office,” the Democrat & Chronicle reported Friday.
A handgun and semi-automatic rifle were found inside the couple’s home, where their 10-year-old child lives.
The D&C noted that “Warren has previously said she did not know about her husband’s activities, nor the guns, and did nothing wrong.”
Back in May, the mayor’s home was raided in connection to a major seven-month-long drug investigation. Granison was arrested and hit with two drug charges and one gun charge. The Daily Wire reported on takeaways from the press conference announcing the shocking news:
Granison’s arrest was part of a seven-months-long investigation; he was not the initial target
There were numerous warrants executed on Wednesday night, in addition to the Granison/Warren home. Seven locations were hit between Wednesday night and Thursday morning and more arrests are expected.
At the time of the arrest, only the couple’s daughter was home, prompting questions from reporters concerning potential child endangerment charges in relation to the gun charge. Doorley refused to comment but noted more charges are coming.
There have already been 2 kilos of crack cocaine confiscated from the busts, which equates to a street value of more than $60,000. Three firearms have been confiscated and more than $100,000 in cash was recovered.
Doorley would not confirm nor deny Mayor Warren’s potential involvement in the investigation, including wire-tapping.
Warren sparked national headlines last year for her handling of the Daniel Prude case. In September, the entire Rochester Police Department (RPD) command staff, including then-Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, resigned over the handling of the case and Warren’s actions.
