Police seize five more guns, arrest five, including yet another Roslindale resident

Boston Police report two separate busts in Dorchester yesterday and early today yielded four handguns, a rifle and 15 bags of pot.

This is in addition to the four guns, bullets and bulletproof vest found in a Dorchester trash barrel yesterday.

According to police, a routine traffic stop around 1:30 a.m. at Carmen and Radcliffe streets in Dorchester ended up as a gun arrest.

Lino Cook, 22, of Dorchester, and Rickie Thompson, 29, of Mattapan, were arrested and a Bryco Arms 9mm semi-automatic handgun and a Beretta .22-caliber handgun seized, police say.

According to police, officers assigned to the Citywide Neighborhood Drug Control Unit and armed with a search unit busted into 47 Topliff St. in Dorchester around 7:10 p.m.

Police say they recovered a loaded Star Arms 9mm handgun, a loaded Beretta .380 handgun, a Ruger .22-caliber long rifle and 15 plastic bags of marijuana.

Arrested: James Edwards, 23, of Dorchester, Jesus Gonzalez, 23, of Dorchester and Jesor Brown, 19, of Roslindale.

Brown is the latest in a recent string of Roslindale residents to be connected with guns or gun violence this year: On Jan. 9, a Roslindale teen was shot to death on Rowe Street. On Feb. 19, a man was shot on Hyde Park Ave. On Feb. 24, a Roslindale teen was arrested after allegedly pointing a loaded gun at a Boston cop in Ashmont. On March 4, a Roslindale teen was charged with firing a gun several times on Mission Hill.

Innocent, etc.

They didn't seize a rifle.

They didn't seize a rifle. .22LR (Long rifle), is the caliber of a round one of the pistols fires.

Who writes these police reports?

You're right. There is no rifle in the photo at all. Looks like they are referring to what appears to be a Ruger Mark III. Is the barrel stamped 22LR or 22 Long Rifle on these pistols? I've used one, but it was a while back.
