YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A convicted felon who jumped a PATH station turnstile this morning was carrying a handgun and hollow-point bullets, authorities said.

Port Authority Officer Matt Vogelman and Pat Carroll were at the 14th Street PATH station in Manhattan at 4:30 this morning when, they said, they saw 36-year-old Rubin Sanabria hop the turnstile.

As they questioned him, the officers noted a bulge in his waistband.

Sanabria “pushed off and tried to run,” the authority’s Al Della Fave told CLIFFVIEW PILOT . “But he picked the wrong two officers. They didn’t have to run far to grab him.”

The officers found Sanabria carrying a loaded .40-cal Smith & Wesson, along with a dozen hollow point bullets, Della Fave said.

Sanabria, of Ninth Avenue, was taken into custody on charges of illegally possessing a weapon and illegal bullets, resisting arrest and theft of services.

If convicted, he’s looking at a potentially long prison sentence, given a criminal record that dates back to 1989 for crimes ranging from robbery to assault to drug offenses.
