Flushing Man Who Stockpiled Firearms Sentenced to 3 1/2 Years in Prison: DA


Jan. 24, 2019 By Christian Murray

A Flushing man was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison today for stockpiling a cache of guns and ammunition in the basement of his Mulberry Avenue house.

Allan Hoo, 47, pleaded guilty in December to weapons charges after police found pistols, assault rifles, air rifles and a loaded .308 rifled in his house on March 25, 2018. Police also found nine high-capacity magazines and a large bag of fireworks.

The police discovered the weapons after Hoo made a bogus 911 claiming that there was an intruder in his house who had fired shots. When police arrived, they quickly determined the call was a hoax and found his stockpile of weapons.

Hoo was also sentenced to 5 years’ post-release supervision.

“This defendant jeopardized the lives of residents in his community by hoarding large amounts of guns and ammunition in his home,” said Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown in a statement. “Not only did this individual collect these weapons, but he lured offices to home with a crank call stating he was in danger.”
