At about 10:21 PM on June 5, 2022, Officers assigned to the B-2 Anti-Crime made an on-site firearm arrest of Nedrick Malcolm, 18, of Dorchester, in the area of 131 Washington Street in Boston.

Officers were on directed patrol when they observed a vehicle fail to stop for a red light.

Officers conducted a traffic stop, and upon speaking with the operator, it was determined that they did not possess a driver’s license.  Officers additionally noted that one of the occupants, later identified as Nedrick Malcolm, attempted to conceal a bag underneath the vehicle seat.  Officers removed the occupants of the vehicle and, when they looked underneath the seat, observed a firearm in an open bag.  As a result of an on-scene investigation, Nedrick Malcolm was taken into custody without incident.

The firearm was a Springfield Armory.45 ACP.  The firearm was loaded with three (3) rounds of ammunition in the magazine.

Nedrick Malcolm is to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a License, and Unlawful Possession of ammunition.
