ONE LESS GUN: At about 6:50 PM, on Saturday, August 10, 2019, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan) recovered a loaded firearm during an investigation in the area of Washington and Ashmont Streets in Dorchester. The officers had stopped a motorized scooter, which was being operated illegally, when they learned that the operator, Ryan Hinds, 22, of Dorchester, did not possess a valid driver’s license and had an outstanding warrant issued out of Roxbury District Court for Assault and Battery. Officers placed the suspect in custody at which time they recovered a loaded .357 Dan Wesson revolver from underneath the scooter seat. It was later determined that the firearm had previously been reported stolen in Taunton, MA. The suspect will appear in Dorchester District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm, Receiving Stolen Property, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle and Operating After Suspension or Revocation.
