Thank goodness for our Pittsfield Police Department, constantly on patrol, and ever-watchful for suspicious or unusual behavior. And once again their persistence paid off early Friday morning.

According to a statement on their Facebook page, the PPD arrested Luke Yeborh early Friday morning on numerous charges after initially pulling him over for erratic driving on Tyler Street.

Apparently, at approximately 3:30 a.m. Friday morning, September 2nd, Pittsfield Police patrol officer Shawn Courtney saw a car driving erratically and crossing the center lines on Tyler Street in the area of Burbank Street.

Officer Courtney performed a routine motor vehicle stop on the car which was a grey Nissan Sentra. The driver was identified as Luke Yeborh who, it turns out, was driving with a suspended license for an earlier infraction.

Upon further investigation of the vehicle, police found a loaded firearm in close proximity to Yeborh. Officers noted that the weapon appeared to be assembled locally and did not feature a serial number making it a "ghost gun".

Yeborh was placed under arrest on the following charges:

  • Operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license
  • Possessing ammunition without FID card
  • Carrying a loaded firearm without a license
  • Possessing a large-capacity firearm
  • Possess large-capacity feeding device
  • Marked lanes violation

Yebohr was to be arraigned at some point today in Berkshire Superior Court. For more on the story, check out the Pittsfield Police Department's Facebook page here.
