Albany police patrol officers recovered two loaded handguns following a call for service early Saturday morning on Quail Street.

On Saturday, November 13, 2021 around 3:05 a.m., patrol officers responded to the 100 block of Quail Street between Central Avenue and Braford Street for reports that a group of men were arguing outside and that they were in possession of handguns.

Moments after the call, police say patrol officers observed a man matching the description of one of the suspects walking nearby and attempted to stop him as part of their investigation.
