iPod plucker busted

A 36-year-old man was in custody Sunday after he allegedly took part in a drive-by robbery in Gravesend.

Officials alleged that Rafael Sanchez and another man rolled up to a Ford E350 on West 8th Street near Avenue X at 3:35 a.m. on March 14 and pulled a gun on the driver, claiming that he was “looking for guns.”

He then told the motorist to look the other way as he reached in and robbed the motorist of his iPod and ring, police alleged.

Cops apprehended Sanchez in his getaway car. Three people were in the car with Sanchez when he was ultimately pulled over. All three were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana.
