Ex-Con Who Threatened Kids Caught With Handgun

CLINTON TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – An ex-con is back behind bars after allegedly threatening kids in a Macomb County apartment complex.

David Garcia was arrested at his home in the Valley Drive Apartments over the weekend after deputies checking on a threats complaint found a semi-automatic handgun on his table.

Detectives say he was drunk. Because he had been convicted of a felony, Garcia wasn’t supposed to have a gun.

Police said the 9 mm handgun was unregistered.

Garcia was arraigned Monday at 41B District Court in Clinton Township and is being held on a $5,000 cash bond.

None of the kids were hurt.
