The top cop at Bayside’s 111th Precinct helped his fellow officers cuff two Jamaica men earlier this month on a slew of illegal drug and gun possession charges.

According to authorities, officers from the command on Northern Boulevard arrested 31-year-old Wilmer Clotter and 63-year-old Rafael Toscano on Aug. 15.

An NYPD spokesperson said that day tour and plainclothes officers apprehended the suspects in the rear of Infiniti of Bayside at 217-07 Northern Blvd. just before 1 p.m. Cops then arrested the pair and brought them to the precinct around 3:17 p.m. that afternoon.

Law enforcement sources noted that Captain John Hall, commander of the 111th Precinct, helped facilitate the arrest.

Police charged Clotter and with the following criminal charges:

  • Second-degree criminal possession of a loaded firearm
  • Third-degree criminal possession of a defaced weapon
  • Criminal possession of a firearm
  • Fourth-degree criminal possession of a firearm or weapon
  • Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance
  •  Third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle

Clotter’s accomplice Toscano faced the same four criminal weapons charges in addition to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with 10 counts of intent to sell.

The NYPD praised police from the Bayside-based precinct for getting illegal firearms and drugs off the streets.
