Boston Police report arresting two men, one from Hyde Park and one from Randolph, on gun charges at Ross Playground in Hyde Park yesterday after somebody called 911 to report a guy with a gun there.
Police say that on scene, witnesses pointed out two men and a woman and said that one of the men had pulled out a gun during an argument at the basketball court shortly before 4:30 p.m.
Officers spoke to one of the males who was observed to be wearing a GPS monitoring device on his ankle. During this interaction, officers made note of the second male carrying a black backpack. A frisk of the backpack led to the discovery of a Glock 26 loaded with thirteen rounds of live ammunition. Both of the males were taken into custody. The female was identified and released from the scene.
Alleged GPS-device wearer Travis Seales, 19, of Randolph, and alleged backpack wearer Messiah Leggett, 20, of Hyde Park, were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm without a license and possession of a large-capacity firearm, police say.
