Watervliet man sentenced for possessing illegal firearm

ALBANY, N.Y.—A Watervliet man was sentenced to 13 ½ years in state prison on Tuesday.

Raquad Graham, 22, was found guilty of one count of Criminal Possessing of a weapon on January 14, 2014.

On June 27, 2013, officers attempted to arrest Graham due to a parole warrant that was issued. Graham initially complied with the officers orders, but then fled to a vacant lot nearby.

Once officers chased him down and had him in custody, they conducted a grid search near the vacant lot Graham ran towards.

During the grid search, officers found a Kel-Tec P-11 9mm Luger handgun loaded with live ammunition that was determined to be Graham’s due to DNA tests.
