District B-3 Units Arrest Man on Firearm Charges After Short Chase

At about 2:41 AM on Sunday September 26, 2021, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan) arrested Peter Montero-Matos, 28, of Roxbury on firearm and motor vehicle related charges in the area of 12 Greenwood Street in Dorchester.

The officers had stopped a vehicle which was being operated by the suspect for an infraction when the vehicle fled. The suspect was apprehended a short time later leading to the recovery of a 9mm Sig Sauer P365 handgun which had been discarded by the suspect. Once in custody the man became violent and combative, attempting to kick out the windows of the cruiser while calling the Officers almost every racial slur in the books.

The suspect will appear in Dorchester District Court on multiple charges including Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device, Failure to Stop for the Police and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle.
