Man with Glock and Fentanyl Is Ordered Free on Bond in SDNY with 18 Birds in Apartment

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 –  Edwin Rivera was arrested and charged federally as a felon in possession of a gun, along with fentanyl. 

 On November 27 he was brought before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Saral L. Cave. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court. 

 The prosecution asked for detention, saying the drugs were distribution quality and the gun was expensive.

The Federal Defender said Rivera is 62 years old and has 18 birds - and that he found the gun.  

Judge Cave said Rivera could be released on bond, but only after one of two suretors sign.

Rivera, near tears and appearing to shiver, said he needed to get back to his phone. But the Federal Defender, he was told, has his apartment keys. And, one hopes, bird seed.

The case, still under seal an hour later, is US v. Rivera, 23-mj-7277 (Cave)
