At about 10:29 PM on Monday November 11, 2019, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) arrested three suspects during an investigation in the area of 26 Schuyler Street in Roxbury. The officers were aware that the target of their investigation, Jacari Cosgrove, 21, of Dorchester, was wanted on an outstanding warrant sought out of Suffolk Superior Court on charges of Home Invasion, Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (4 Counts) and Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (3 Counts). When the officers located and approached the suspect in a driveway at the above address, the suspect immediately fled into the building, locking the door behind him. Additional responding units set a perimeter and were able to gain entry, at which time they located the suspect hiding in the basement along with two other individuals who did not reside in the building, later identified as Anthony Kelley, 18, of Dorchester and Rivaldo Jean, 18, of Dorchester. All three parties were placed in custody without incident. The officers continued their investigation and requested a BPD K-9 to the scene to search for any possible weapons. K-9 'Tyson' and his handler soon located a .40 caliber Smith & Wesson SW40VE handgun which was later determined to have been discarded by Cosgrove.
The three suspects are expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court. In addition to answering for his outstanding warrant, Jacari Cosgrove will be charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Trespassing. Anthony Kelley and Rivaoldo Jean will both be charged with Trespassing.
