Boston Police report arresting a Hingham man at gun charges at the Gulf station at Western Avenue and North Harvard Street in Allston early this morning.
Police say officers and state troopers pulled into the closed station around 12:10 a.m. when they saw a car stopped there, and a man they say was a bit wobbly as he got out to try to pump some gas:
Officers observed the driver to be unsteady on his feet as he exited the motor vehicle to get gas. Officers informed the driver, later identified as Christopher Hiltz, 33, of Hingham, that the gas station was closed for business.
Hiltz, still unsteady on his feet, began reaching into his pockets. Officers performed a pat frisk of Mr. Hiltz and recovered a loaded Sig Sauer 9mm firearm with 6 rounds of ammunition in the magazine. A second magazine was recovered containing 7 additional rounds.
Hiltz was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say.
