Multi-Unit Investigation Leads to Arrests and Firearms Recovered in Roxbury

The information and images contained in this article may be delayed due to the FOIA and public records guidelines which allow departments to take up-to multiple months to fulfill requests such as providing booking photos. The inculded reports have been redacted by both BPD as well as Live Boston Staff for reasons of investigatory purpose as well as officer safety.

About 2:00 PM, on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, officers assigned to the BPD City Wide Drug Control Unit, Youth Violence Task Force, District B-2 (Roxbury) and Massachusetts State Police made several onsite arrests in the area of Seaver Street and Elm Hill Avenue, resulting in the recovery of two loaded firearms. The full report can be read below:

After an ongoing investigation and a traffic stop, officers arrested the following suspects; Kharome Greene, 24, of Mattapan, charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. Jacari Cosgrove, 24, of Dorchester, charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. Carlos Perez-Mejia, 27, of Dorchester, charged with Receiving Stolen Motor Vehicle.

The firearms were determined to be a loaded Springfield Armory XDS semi-automatic .45 caliber firearm with one round in the chamber and five rounds in the magazine and a Glock 27 .40 caliber semi-automatic firearm with one round in the chamber and ten rounds in the magazine. All three suspects are expected to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.

It is unclear at this time why the Boston Police redacted Carlos Perez-Mejia’s name and information from the report and refused to provide his booking photo.
