Three Guns Recovered After Teen Joyride Ends in Crash on Mission Hill

At about 12:20 AM, on Tuesday, February 15, 2022, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) made an on-site Firearm arrest in the area of Parker Street and Parker Hill Avenue in Roxbury. 

While on patrol in the area, officers observed a motor vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. Officers activated their lights and sirens to conduct a traffic stop, but the motor vehicle sped up and failed to stop for several stop signs.

The motor vehicle finally came to a stop after driving onto the sidewalk, hitting a parked car.  As a result of the traffic stop and further investigation, it was revealed through a CJIS query that the motor vehicle had been reported stolen.

Officers recovered three loaded firearms from the motor vehicle: an American Tactical M1911 G1 .45 ACP with one round in the chamber and seven rounds in the magazine, a Taurus G3C 9 mm with one round in the chamber and nine rounds in the magazine and a Taurus PT809 9 mm, with one round in the chamber and thirteen rounds in the magazine.
