On July 8, 2016 at 9:11pm, Several Hartford Police Officers were conducting a detail in response to a recent increase of firearm related incidents within the North District of the City of Hartford. HPD Officers responded to 190 Westland Street on a report of a female recklessly pointing and threatening the use of a firearm towards a crowd of people. Upon arrival, Patrol Officers made contact with the suspect inside 190 Westland Street and quickly recovered a 9mm pistol with 12 rounds of live ammunition. During the investigation it was learned that the accused, who is permitted to carry a pistol in Connecticut, transported another firearm to New York City. Once the location of the firearm was obtained the NYPD 75th Precinct was notified by HPD. HPD was later contacted by members of the Brooklyn North Borough Crime Unit and informed they were able to locate the Ruger SR40 with 20 live rounds of ammunition. Additionally, the occupant of the apartment was taken into custody on felony related firearm charges. A pistol permit revocation was completed and the accused was transported to the Hartford Police Booking Facility.

Arrested: Rosa Quintana 04/27/70 of 190 Westland Street 1st floor Hartford, CT
Charges: Reckless Endangerment 2nd, Threatening 2nd, and Breach of Peace
Recovered: Taurus PT111 PRO 9mm semi-automatic pistol, (12) 9mm live rounds

Good Morning and another great job done by Hartford Police int he arrest of Ms. Quintana.

Police go on gun calls every day of the year and this was a great conclusion. No one was hurt. Not anyone in the public, no police officers and not the offender. She is a violent, reckless individual who is hopefully going to have a respite in jail to think about her actions.

We expect our police officers to respond to such calls daily, risk their lives to a public who generally takes them for granted and then feels the need to criticize the way they protect us.

Its a tough job and a necessary job and I was proud to be a member of HPD for over 20 years. The reality is that gun calls are commonplace and it is the members of the Hartford Police who respond to this danger every day. Think about that before raining down the smack on the cops.

Nice work. Stay safe. Everyone matters
