Two arrested on gun charges after traffic stop in Egleston Square

Boston Police report arresting two people they say were being driven around Egleston Square with guns and ammo in their possession yesterday afternoon.

Police say officers from the South Boston drug unit got a tip they'd find some guns in a car in the area of Egleston Square around 2 p.m.

After pulling the car over, police say, they found Asuasha Griffiths, 26, of Mattapan, in the back seat, with a fanny pack containing "a Polymer 80 9MM semiautomatic firearm" and two magazines, one a 17-round model loaded with 8 bullets.

Joseph Vilburn, 20, of Dorchester, sitting in the front, had a backpack " containing a Colt .38 Special revolver with four live rounds inside the cylinder," police say

Griffiths was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say, adding Vilburn was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

In 2017, Griffiths, then living in Malden, was arrested on gun charges after being ordered out of a car on Darlington Street in Mattapan, again after police received a tip about her.

Innocent, etc.

Yet still on the streets..this is where anti-gun folks should be focused.. illegal possession should be a mandatory 10 years.

They just want to make new rules for the people who already follow the old ones.

The mandatory minimum was 1 year, increased to 18 months in 2014. Guess what? It's the first thing DA's drop.

The state's increasingly draconian gun laws inconvenience and intimidate the people already obeying them. The criminals breaking them could care less because the courts don't do much to make them care. The problems lie within the courts' unwillingness to enforce the laws against criminals.
