Utica Weapon Arrest After Man Threatens to Shoot Others with AK-47

On April 24th, 2024, Utica Police officers were alerted to an individual who was making threatening statements about shooting people with an AK-47. The male in question had sent messages to other parties, threatening the use of the firearm and even shared pictures of the weapon. It was also reported that he had shown rifle magazines to others and made similar threats.

Based on the seriousness of the situation, the police decided to file for an Extreme Risk Protection Order. Once the order was granted, they went to the individual’s address on the 1400 block of Taylor Ave, found him, and conducted a search of his premises. They were able to locate the rifle mentioned, rifle magazines, as well as several associated parts of other firearms.

Following the search, the male, Edward Reesh, who is 42 years old and from Utica, was taken into custody as the weapon he had was illegal to possess. He was then transported to the Utica Police Department and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree, four times. This included a previous conviction, an assault rifle, and two large capacity ammunition devices.
