DA: Tip leads cops to South Boston man with illegal weapon, ammo
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 Lexis’ taillights illuminate as if someone had remotely unlocked it. They then watched as Laboy – who met the general description provided by the tipster – 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 officers’ 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.
