Report: Cop pleads guilty to stealing guns from the 9th Precinct

Nicholas Mina, the cop who reportedly stole guns from lockers at the 9th Precinct on East Fifth Street, pleaded guilty today.

Per the Daily News:

The 32-year-old officer agreed to serve 15 ½ years in state prison, avoiding the 20 year maximum sentence, for being part of a large drug and gun ring.

The four-year veteran of the NYPD was reportedly hooked on prescription drugs, and gave four stolen guns and a bulletproof vest to his drug dealer to pay off debts.

Mina is expected to be sentenced on Nov. 7.
