The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a Utica man wanted for weapons, according to Oneida County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Sahid Karcic.
Police are looking for Keesawn J. Rucker, 22, who is known to be staying in Utica, according to police. On July 21, Judge Michael L. Dwyer signed a warrant for the arrest of Rucker for criminal possession of a 2n/a (C/F) and criminal possession of a firearm (E/F).
Karcic says the warrant stems from charges dating back to January when Utica police units were dispatched to James/Steuben Street in regards to a welfare complaint check. Rucker was eventually taken into custody under the New York State mental hygiene law. Eventually, police located a handgun on Rucker.
Rucker is also wanted by the Utica Police Department on an arrest warrant for false impersonation (M).
