Boston Police report arresting a woman they say threatened somebody on Dudley Street at Dearborn Street shortly before 11 a.m. on Sunday.
Police say that officers responding to a 911 call about the incident found Jatia Ellis, 27, across the street. When she saw them, she ran, but they ran faster and put her in cuffs, police say.
Officers conducted a frisk of Ellis’s backpack and felt a hard object, consistent with the shape of a firearm. Officers recovered a Starfire MOD 9mm with one (1) round in the chamber and eight (8) rounds in the magazine. An additional search of Ellis revealed a plastic bag containing one unidentified pill.
She was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of a large-capacity feeding device and possession of a controlled substance, police say.
Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device, Possession of Ammunition, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
