Suspected Jihadist Indicted on Multiple Weapons Charges Near LaGuardia Airport

A suspected Jihadist from Queens, Judd Sanson, has been indicted on over a dozen weapons charges after being apprehended near LaGuardia Airport, armed to the teeth, prosecutors announced on Tuesday. The incident occurred on June 12 when Sanson was pulled over just blocks away from the airport for allegedly driving with a covered license plate.

Upon searching Sanson’s vehicle, law enforcement officers made a chilling discovery. The cache of weapons and body armor found inside the car was nothing short of alarming. Prosecutors revealed a comprehensive list of the weapons recovered, including guns, knives, axes, and a black baton inscribed with provocative phrases such as “Left Me No Choice,” “You Gon Learn Today,” and an Arabic expression meaning “Ask In God For Forgiveness.” Notably, a body armor vest adorned with an NYPD patch was also found.

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz expressed her concern, stating, “The borough of Queens has two major airports and must always be kept safe. When a person is pulled over, and police recover a baton with inciteful language written on it, a loaded weapon, ammunition, and NYPD paraphernalia, we are very concerned.”

The arrest took place around 1:30 a.m. on 86th Street and 23rd Avenue in East Elmhurst. Sanson was observed with a knife holstered to his right pant leg, which he promptly surrendered upon request. Further search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a loaded Glock semi-automatic 9 mm pistol under the driver’s seat, along with nine loaded magazines and 127 rounds of 9 mm ammunition in a bag on the rear passenger seat. Additionally, a black baton with a silver blade, a whip, handcuffs, another baton with inscriptions, a stun gun, a machete, a switchblade, a butterfly knife, a hatchet, a Guy Fawkes mask, and the NYPD body armor vest were found.

During Sanson’s arraignment, investigators also uncovered a “disturbing photo” on his Facebook page, although no further details were provided. Katz expressed her concerns about Sanson’s proximity to the airport, raising questions about his intent.
