Search Warrant Leads to the Recovery of a Second Firearm After Five Hour Standoff in South Boston

At about 2:40 AM on Wednesday August 24, 2016, members of the Boston Police SWAT Team placed a wanted fugitive in custody after a five hour standoff in the area 9 Orton-Moratta Way in South Boston.  A fully loaded .762 caliber Century Arms Inc rifle with a large capacity magazine was recovered during that incident but the officers were aware that the suspect may have hidden a second, smaller firearm inside the apartment.  A search warrant was executed later that evening which led to the recovery of a .380 caliber Grendel Inc. P-10 handgun.  The suspect, Stephen Gingras, 39, of Manchester (NH), will be facing an additional charge of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.
