Recidivist Database Of NYPD Used For SDNY Detention of Montanez For Crimes on Allerton Ave

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 22 –   Christopher Montanez has been detained pending trial on charges of brandishing a gun to rob a bank at 706 Allerton Avenue in the Bronx on January 21. But there is more to the story.   The complaint on which Montanez is detained alleged that on January 16, Montanez "displayed a firearm in his waistband" to rob a cell phone store at 738 Allerton Avenue of $300.

   The NYPD put up a flier, and then Confidential Source-1 contacted them and said that the person in the flier had been arrest approximately one year ago "after his participation in a fight at a bodega on Allerton Avenue."

    The NYPD, Inner City Press now understands based on its reporting, used a "recidivist" data base to identify Montanez and begin surveilling him, leading to his arrest and now detention. Inner City Press understands that the recidivist database includes inter alia turnstile fare beating incidents. The case is US v. Montanez, 20-mj-760 (Gorenstein).
