This past Monday, May 23, 2022, at approximately 3:30 PM, Pittsfield Police Officer Ansy Jumeau was patrolling the Big Y Supermarket parking lot located at 200 West St. when observed he observed a male party attempting to conceal an object in the front of his pants.

As the man, who was later identified as 27-year-old Myles Handy, passed the officer, the officer observed the outline of a firearm handle from inside Handy’s t-shirt. Officer Jumeau attempted to catch up to Handy, who had started walking faster away from him and refused to stop.

At one point, Handy’s shirt lifted, thus giving the officer visual confirmation that he possessed a non-holstered firearm. Officer Jumeau eventually caught up with Handy and demanded to see his firearm License to Carry. Hand refused and continued walking away, however, officer Jumeau was able to detain the man.

Officer Jumeau recovered a loaded 9mm firearm from the front of Handy's waistband. It was confirmed that Mr. Handy does not possess a valid license to carry and he was subsequently placed under arrest.

Upon arrival at the station, several baggies containing substances consistent with the appearance of crack cocaine were located in the cruiser where Handy had been seated. Subsequently, during the booking procedure, Handy was found to be in possession of more plastic bags containing substances consistent with the appearance of crack cocaine.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
