One Less Gun: Officers Arrest One and Recover Illegal Firearm in Roxbury


At about 11:50 AM on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, members of the Youth Violence Strike Force made an onsite arrest and recovered an illegal firearm in the area of 2360 Washington Street in Roxbury.

Officers on directed patrol in the area were conducting a firearm investigation when they observed the male suspect exit a store in the area. As officers approached the individual, who was believed to be in possession of an illegal firearm, they conducted a pat frisk of the male. The search allowed officers to recover a High Point model 09 9MM semi-automatic pistol loaded with seven live rounds of ammunition.

Officers arrested 35-year-old Anthony Saucer of Dorchester and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Level III Armed Career Criminal.
