17-year-old arrested on gun charges at Mass and Cass; his pal, even younger, charged with drug trafficking, police say

Boston Police report arresting a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old who were ambling around Methadone Mile, one with a gun loaded with ten rounds, the other with enough heroin or fentanyl to warrant a trafficking charge around 5:50 p.m. on Friday.

Police say officers were at Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard specifically looking the 17-year-old, who was wanted on a warrant for violating his probation on an earlier gun disposition out of Middlesex County juvenile court.

As officers approached suspect #1, he attempted to flee on foot while clutching the area of his waistband. Suspect #2, attempted to help Suspect #1 conceal the item which officers observed to be a large capacity magazine protruding from the juveniles’ pants.

Both suspects were quickly apprehended in the area of the Sunoco gas station on Massachusetts Avenue. The firearm was found to be a loaded Glock 9MM with one round in the chamber and nine rounds in the magazine.

The older teen was charged with being delinquent for carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, unlawful possession of a firearm, second offense, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device and possession of marijuana.

The younger teen was charged with being delinquent for trafficking between 14 and 27 grams of a Class A drug, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, police say.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Godammit WTF. More concerned with invasive roots in your small food gardening than the invasive roots of the drug trafficking industry that led this kid to be it's bitch. Serious bullshit.

The names Methadone mile and Mass and Cass give the neighborhood a bad vibe. Change the name to Recovery Road so our political leaders who have failed miserably in addressing the open air drug markets can declare victory.

An open air drug market. Not sure much recovery is happening down on Methadone Mile.
