Romulus man accused of possessing stolen gun, multiple others without permit

Deputies in Seneca County say that a 46-year-old Romulus man was arrested on multiple charges after an investigation into a domestic incident resulted in the discovery of at least one stolen gun.

Deputies say they responded to the domestic incident in Romulus around 8 am and when deputies arrived Charles V. Mullen spoke with them — describing an argument that was had with another individual inside the residence.

As they were conducting their investigation, deputies located several firearms in the residence. Further investigation revealed that Mullen did not possess a New York State Pistol Permit.

He was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both Class E felonies, as well as criminal possession of stolen property — a Class E felony. The stolen property charge stemmed from one of the pistols being reported stolen from North Carolina.

Mullen was arraigned in Seneca Falls Town Court and remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail. He will answer the charges at a later date.
