The NYPD is crediting two sharp-eyed police officers with seizing an illegal handgun while arresting two alleged turnstile jumpers at the Parsons Boulevard/Archer Avenue subway station on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said officers Brian Chiang, left, and John Cammarata of the 103rd Precinct were assigned to a Transit Bureau Impact Team when they allegedly saw two men go through a turnstile while only swiping their MetroCard once.

After arresting Bo Bannister, 16, of Rosedale, and Daquan Monroe, 17, of Springfield Gardens, the officers allegedly recovered a Bryco Jennings 9 mm handgun and a loaded magazine.

Both have been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and theft of service.
