Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man on gun charges - and seizing "a large quantity of illegal fireworks" from his trunk - early this morning.
Police say that after pulling Marco Louis, 29, over for a traffic stop outside 29 Stanton St. around 4:30 a.m., officers learned he did not have a valid license.
Upon ordering the operator to exit the vehicle, the officers performed a pat frisk which led to the recovery of a loaded 9mm Kel-Tec handgun with a defaced serial number from inside a black ‘fanny pack’ which was draped across the suspect’s chest. The suspect was then placed in custody without incident. While preparing to tow the suspect motor vehicle, officers observed and recovered a large quantity of illegal fireworks from inside the trunk.
Louis now faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number and operating after revocation or suspension, police say.
