Officers Arrest One for Unlawful Possession of Ammunition During Traffic Stop in South Boston


At about 12:50 AM on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, officers assigned to District C-6 (South Boston) made an onsite arrest and recovered live ammunition during a traffic stop in the area of 11 W. Broadway Street in South Boston. While on patrol in the above area, officers discovered a motor vehicle operating with an expired registration and conducted a traffic stop. During the traffic stop, officers spoke to the operator who stated that he had recently purchased the vehicle and had not registered it. At this time, officers notified the operator and the passengers that the motor vehicle was going to be towed for the expired registration and attached plates. A search of the vehicle led officers to discover a Glock magazine containing six rounds of live ammunition located under the passenger's seat. The operator was subsequently taken into custody. 

Officers arrested Victor Pimentel, 22-years-old, of Brockton. Pimentel is expected to be arraigned in South Boston District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Unattended Ammunition.
