Ex-con arrested for having shotgun linked to recent crime

A 49-year-old 14th Street man was arrested late Wednesday on a felony weapons charge after Buffalo police detectives reported finding in his house a loaded pistol-grip shotgun linked to a recent city crime.

Dennis Owens, who served a six-year state prison term for a 1999 local robbery conviction, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Detectives on a search for another suspect on 14th Street very late Wednesday night, reported questioning Owens and finding the loaded shotgun under the stairs to the basement of his house.
