Yesterday morning around 8:30AM, officers from District A-1 (Downtown Boston) responded to the Hyatt Hotel located at 1 Avenue DeLafayette for a vehicle parked by valet with a gun inside of it. Officers responded to the hotel and were directed by valet staff to the car where a firearm could clearly be seen on the front seat. Officers secured the firearm and then responded to the room of the guests that owned the car. There, the two individuals who came in the car were placed under arrest after further investigation.

The two suspects, were arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Possession with Intent to Distribute.
