COLONIE – A domestic violence call Tuesday morning in Loudonville led police to two illegal assault rifles, a “ghost gun” and a man’s arrest, police said.

Alexander R. Alomar, 20, of Loudonville was arrested in the incident and charged with three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, all felonies.

The incident began early Tuesday as a woman went to Bethlehem Police with a report of a domestic violence incident on Clover Lane in Loudonville. The woman went with her mother, a Bethlehem resident, police said.

The woman reported her boyfriend, Alomar, threatened her, threw her to the ground, spit in her face and broke her cell phone, police said. She was able to get away, get to her mother’s and then to police.

She then also reported Alomar possessed an illegal handgun, assault rifles, high capacity magazines and a bulletproof vest, police said. She also reported he had made statements about a plan to ambush and shoot police.

The Colonie SWAT team then responded as investigators sought a search warrant. Alomar, however, left the residence on his own prior to the search and was taken into custody without incident.

Inside his residence, investigators found a loaded 9mm “ghost gun,” the two assault rifles and four loaded high-capacity magazines, along with the bulletproof vest, police said.

Police are continuing to investigate the origin of the weapons.

Alomar was also charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth-degree criminal mischief, misdemeanors, and violation harassment.

Alomar was arraigned and released to probation supervision, police said.
