CAR STOP LEADS TO GUN ARREST IN ROXBURYAt about 2:54 am, on Thursday, June 25, 2009, officers from Area B-2 (Roxbury) while on patrol in the area of Warren Street observed a white motor vehicle fail to stop for a red light. As a result, officers activated their emergency equipment (lights & sirens) and stopped the car. Upon approaching the car, officers noted that the operator appeared to be nervous due to the fact he was fidgety and breathing heavy. When asked about the red light, the operator stated, “Sorry, I missed the light. I’m just trying to get home.” When officers asked the operator to provide his license and registration, the operator stated that the car was a rental. When officers reviewed the rental agreement, officers noted that the operator’s name was not on the paperwork. Given the operator’s unlawful use of the motor vehicle, officers towed the car. Prior to towing the car, officers conducted a search or inventory of the car. While searching the car, with assistance from Boston Police K-9 units, officers located and took possession of a silver-colored firearm. When officers asked the operator to produce a license to carry a firearm, the suspect stated, “I don’t have one.” During the booking process, the suspect admitted to officers, “It’s my gun.” Officers arrested Jesus Crawford, 18, of Everett and charged him with the Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm on a Public Way and the Using a Motor Vehicle without Authority.
