One Less Gun: Suspect Unknowingly Threatens Undercover Police Officer

At about 6:10 PM on Thursday, May 14, 2015, members of the District A-1 (Downtown) Drug Control Unit were conducting surveillance in the area of 172 Tremont Street.

While monitoring the area, an officer in an unmarked cruiser parked in front of the above address was alerted to the sound of a motor vehicle horn honking loudly behind him. The officer realized that the operator of the motor vehicle was actually honking his horn at him. The operator then pulled up to the side of the officer’s cruiser and began shouting obscenities and displaying his middle finger at the officer. When the officer advised the operator to pull over, the operator displayed a black colored firearm towards the officer and threatened, “You don’t want any of this.” The operator then sped away in his car.

The officer requested additional units to respond to conduct a stop of the motor vehicle. Upon stopping the car, officers observed the above firearm (a black loaded Glock 17 9mm firearm) on the driver’s side seat. The operator, 35-year-old Aaron Jesky of Canton, was placed under arrest for Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon to wit: Gun, and his License to Carry was immediately placed on suspension by the chief of police in the issuing town. An inventory search of the motor vehicle prior to towing revealed a loaded black Heckler & Koch P30 9mm firearm with additional magazines and ammunition. Jesky was additionally charged with Improper Storage of a Firearm.
