Alexis Laboy, 24, was arrested last night after police found a Calico M-100 "mini-rifle" with its shoulder stock removed on him - inside a bag that contained 48 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition - the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports, adding he didn't have a license for either.
South Boston District Court Judge Michael Bolden set bail today at $20,000.
According to the DA's office, somebody dropped a dime on Laboy around 8:20 p.m., telling police he was driving around Southie with another guy in a black Durango - after they'd gotten out of a Lexis. Police couldn't find the Durango, so they staked out the Lexis, parked at Father Songin Way and Kemp Street, the DA's office says:
About an hour and a half later, police observed the Lexisâ€™ taillights illuminate as if someone had remotely unlocked it. They then watched as Laboy â€“ who met the general description provided by the tipster â€“ approached the car and lifted its hatchback to rummage through a large bag.
Boston Police approached Laboy, who allegedly reached inside the left upper side of his jacket despite the officersâ€™ orders to place his hands by his side. One detective moved to secure Laboy and immediately felt a long, heavy object inside. That object, which was tossed away from Laboy, later turned out to be the Calico M-100 with its shoulder stock removed.
