Suspects Stopped for Speeding Arrested with Firearm Last night around 9:10pm, officers from the Youth Violence Strike Force observed a speeding motor vehicle in the area of Church St. and Winter St. in Dorchester. Officers followed this car and were not able to conduct a motor vehicle stop until Quincy St. and Bellevue St. due to the speed of the car. Officers approached the operator and requested of him his license and registration. The operator responded to officers that he was not licensed to drive, and as such was placed under arrest. Two other passengers were in the car including the owner. Neither had a license and as such the car was towed by officers. During an inventory search of the car, officers located a firearm and ammunition in the car. Officers arrested the operator of the car, Casimiro M. Barros, Jr., 20, of Roxbury and charged him with Operating Without Being Licensed, Speeding, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition, Second Subsequent Offense, and Being an Armed Career Criminal.
