On Thursday, October 26, 2023, at approximately 12:40 P.M., Officers from the Hamilton Police Anti-Crime Unit were in the area of Nottingham Way and Greenwood Avenue when they observed a Toyota Corolla commit a motor vehicle violation. The vehicle pulled into a gas station on the 1600 block of Nottingham Way. While speaking to the driver of the vehicle he told Officers that the front passenger had a firearm on his person but had a permit to carry the weapon. Officers then spoke to the passenger who admitted to having a handgun in his right hip area, but he had a permit for the weapon. Officers disarmed him of the weapon until they could confirm the validity of his permit. He was identified as Martique Perry, 22, of Hamilton. Further investigation revealed Perry did not have a permit for the weapon and did not own the weapon. He was then placed under arrest. 

Perry was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and Possession of a Weapon for Unlawful Purpose. Perry was transported to the Mercer County Correctional Facility pending a detention hearing. 

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Hamilton Police Division Anti-Crime Unit at (609) 581-4102 or the Hamilton Police Crime Tip Hotline at (609) 581-4008.
