An off-duty FDNY firefighter was arrested Wednesday after cops found an illegal gun and drugs in a Ravenswood apartment.
Jaquell Ramos, 28, was inside an apartment at the Ravenswood NYCHA complex building at around 9:30 p.m. when cops executed a search warrant and found the firearm and some marijuana, according to police.
Ramos, who is from Queens, was arrested with seven other suspects who were also inside the apartment, located at 12-35 35th Ave.
Police said that Ramos does not live at the Ravenswood complex. A NYPD spokesperson did not reveal where he lives, just saying he resides in the borough.
All eight suspects have been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana. Cops did not disclose why the search was conducted.
Ramos has been with the FDNY for three years and is stationed in Queens, according to the FDNY.
He will be suspended upon arraignment, the FDNY said.
