A City of Geneva resident was taken into custody Friday evening after a disturbance involving a group of over twenty people led to the discovery of a loaded stolen handgun. The Geneva Police Department reported that the incident occurred on Union Street at approximately 6:17 p.m.


Adrian Lamar Mayers, 28, was apprehended by officers from the Uniformed Division who spotted him wielding a semi-automatic 9mm handgun amid the chaos. The officers were able to confiscate the weapon and detain Mayers without further incident. A subsequent check of the handgun confirmed it as stolen and loaded with 12 rounds of ammunition.

Mayers has been charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a Class C felony, and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a Class D felony. He was taken to the Ontario County Jail to await arraignment. The Geneva Police Department is continuing its investigation into the altercation that led to the arrest.
