BOSTON – BPD Officers Arrest 15-Year-Old Suspect on Firearm-Related Charges Following Stolen Motor Vehicle Investigation in Dorchester

At about 12:10 PM on Friday February 11, 2022, members of the BPD Youth Violence Task Force made an onsite firearm arrest of a 15-year-old male from Dorchester following an investigation in the area of 10 Helen Street in Dorchester.

The officers were on patrol when they observed a motor vehicle stopped on the side of the road with damage to two of the four wheels as well as the driver’s side of the vehicle. Upon approaching and speaking with the operator, later identified as the 15-year-old suspect, officers confirmed that the juvenile was an unlicensed operator and learned that the vehicle had previously been reported stolen. Upon removing the suspect, officers performed a pat frisk leading to the recovery of a loaded 9mm Smith and Wesson SW9VE handgun with an obliterated serial number from the suspect’s jacket pocket.

The suspect was placed in custody without incident and will appear in Dorchester Juvenile Court on multiple charges including Delinquent to Wit: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device, Possession of a Firearm with a Defaced Serial Number, Receiving Stolen Motor Vehicle and Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle.
