At about 1:03 PM on Wednesday October 31, 2018, officers assigned to the Red Sox Victory Parade made an onsite firearm arrest in the area of 127 Tremont Street in Downtown Boston. The officers were standing at their assigned posts when they were approached by a concerned citizen who stated that they had observed what appeared to be the handle of a firearm protruding from the waistband of an individual in the area. The witness was able to direct their attention to the suspect, later identified as a 17-year-old male from Somerville, who was still walking nearby at which time the officers approached and performed a pat frisk. The officers were then able to safely recover a loaded 9mm Radon handgun from the suspect’s waistband area while placing him in custody without incident. Officers also recovered three bags of marijuana, assorted loose pills and cash from the suspect. The suspect will appear in Boston Juvenile Court on charges of Delinquent to Wit: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (2nd & Subsequent), Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device, Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B and D Drugs.
