Cops from the Midtown South precinct arrived at the Minskoff Theatre on West 45th Street at 12:30 p.m., and went backstage to collect Ilya Vett, 47, the assistant supervisor for the prop department.
The article goes on to state the following:
Vett, of Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, had been using a 3D printer at the theater to make a handgun, police sources said.

Ironically, Vet was arrested on the very same day as Cody Wilson, a Texas man who announced he would make blueprints available online for the printing of the illegal 3-D plastic guns. Wilson was reportedly arrested in Taiwan on charges of having sex with an underage girl.
ICYMI, 3D printed gun activist #CodyWilson was arrested by authorities in Taipei yesterday. It’s expected that Taiwan and the US will now work to get him back to the states so Wilson can face allegations of child sexual assault. https://t.co/UXauJEXhcH
