A leader of the Boro Park Shomrim private safety patrol paid NYPD cops nearly $1 million in bribes to score pistol permits for 150 members of the Orthodox Jewish community — including one with a history of domestic violence who once threatened to kill someone, the feds charged Monday.
The stunning allegations against Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein came as the NYPD announced it was cleaning house at its License Division, where a cop allegedly admitted that Lichtenstein gave him and a supervisor “lunch money” to process applications for him.
The division’s commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Michael Endall, “is being re-assigned to an administrative position pending further review,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in a statement.
