Felon charged with threatening plant employees with gun in Dunkirk

DUNKIRK – A man threatened employees at a manufacturing plant with a gun Wednesday morning, according to Dunkirk police.

Police said Rolando Rivera-Santos, 41, entered the plant – which police refused to identify – and displayed a handgun.

Police arrived just after 5 a.m. and confronted Rivera-Santos, who had a .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol in his back pocket, Dunkirk police said.

Officers recognized Rivera-Santos, of Park Avenue in Dunkirk, as being a convicted felon and thereby not lawfully permitted to possess a gun, police said.

Rivera-Santos was charged with two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree menacing. He was being held without bail until his arraignment in Dunkirk City Court.
