Top aide of gun-control advocate Bill de Blasio is arrested on weapon charges after she’s found in a car with a loaded pistol

An aide of New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has been arrested after she was found in a car with a loaded gun near the scene of a shooting.

Police found Reagan Stevens, 42, sitting in the back of a double-parked car in Jamaica, Queens, near where an NYPD ‘ShotSpotter’ device had just detected five gunshots on Saturday night.

The deputy director at the mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon after a nine-mm gun with the serial number scratched off and a shell casing were found in the 2002 Infiniti’s glove compartment, officials said.
