Gang Unit Recovers Yet Another Firearm During Traffic Stop

At about 6:38 PM on Friday October 22, 2021, members of the BPD Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Brian Freeman, 25, of Boston on firearm related charges following a traffic stop in the area of 980 Harrison Avenue in Roxbury. The officers had stopped a motor vehicle for an equipment violation when they determined that the vehicle’s registration had expired. After the officers removed the suspect, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle at the time of the stop, they recovered a loaded 9mm handgun equipped with a laser sight attached from inside the vehicle. The suspect was then placed in custody without incident on scene.

The suspect will appear in Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (2nd and Subsequent), Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle.
