FDNY fire marshals have arrested Mr. Mohamed for reckless endangerment after storing 904 propane cylinders in a warehouse in Brooklyn. FDNY

The manager of a Brooklyn warehouse was charged with reckless endangerment after fire inspectors nabbed him with a stash of more than 900 propane cylinders, officials said.

Mohamed Mohamed, 58, who runs the Gowanus warehouse, was arrested after fire inspectors uncovered the combustible stockpile of 20-pound propane tanks on Friday, the FDNY said on Twitter.

“If not for the due diligence of our fire inspectors, there’s a great danger,” FDNY spokesman James Long said Sunday. “It could let loose and explode in a manner that could be deadly.”

“You introduce a fire to that scenario and it’s a fire that is advanced,” Long said. “It could level a city block.”

Fire inspectors said the cylinders were stacked “from floor to ceiling.”

“He was charged with storing over 900 propane tanks in an unoccupied building,” a police source said.

Mohamed, of Bayonne, NJ , admitted that he was ordering the tanks in bulk so he could sell them to someone else, who in turn was peddling the propane to Big Apple restaurants so they could heat their outdoor serving areas during indoor-dining prohibitions due to the coronavirus pandemic, officials said.

In all, the fire marshals uncovered 904 of the cylinders, the department said.

Mohamed did not return a call seeking comment on Sunday.

He was released on a desk appearance ticket, police said.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
