Police: Teen brings loaded gun, heroin on car-break-in expedition to East Boston

Boston Police report arresting a Roxbury teenager and three companions they say they found inside a car in East Boston that did not belong to any of them.

According to police, around 8:50 this morning, an East Boston resident called 911 to report four guys were breaking into his car at 6 Clippership Lane. Officers found "a damaged steering column and 4 males inside the caller’s vehicle," police say. And then:

As officers ordered the suspects out of the car, an officer observed a bulge consistent with the shape of a firearm in the suspect’s waistband. When a pat frisk of the suspect revealed a firearm in his waistband, the suspect attempted to evade officers, but officers were able to apprehend the suspect after a short foot pursuit. While recovering the loaded Sturm and Ruger .45 caliber firearm, the officers observed the suspect spit a small plastic bag containing a white substance with a brown tint believed to be heroin onto the ground.

Maurice Nunez, 18, of Roxbury, was charged with unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, possession of a loaded firearm while in the commission of a felony, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, malicious destruction of property and possession with intent to distribute a Class A substance.

Adilson Monteiro, 24, of Dorchester, and two juvenile males were charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property.

Innocent, etc.
