ITHACA, N.Y. — Two Ithacans were indicted Thursday after being accused of illegally possessing a firearm in a vehicle this summer.

Jovon L. Monk and Breanna D. Uppenbrink are facing multiple indictment after the incident that happened May 19.

Both of them were indicted on a count of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. Monk was also indicted on third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

According to court documents, police found a Davis Industries .380 in the glove box of the passenger side of a vehicle, where Monk was sitting, at 214 N. Meadow St. It was reportedly loaded with hollow-point bullets on a five round magazine with a bullet in the chamber.

Monk is also facing charges after a slew of other incidents that happened within the span of a few days, including allegedly attacking a woman and selling heroin.

He’s being represented by attorney Todd Miller.

Monk is still in custody being held without bail due to the fact that he is predicate felon.
