Zenner Street man arrested on felony weapons charges

The arrest of a 20-year-old Zenner Street man on felony weapons charges was announced by Buffalo police Wednesday.

Pleas Starks was arrested on Monday after he allegedly ran into a house in the first block of Zenner after police officers noticed a large bulge in his jeans pocket that turned out to be a handgun, and they went to question him outside the house.

As Starks pulled out the handgun, police officers reported grabbing it from him. Starks was charged with felony counts of second and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree obstructing governmental administration for allegedly trying to avoid questioning by the officers, according to a police report.
