Boston Police report arresting a man they say was in possession of a sawed-off shotgun in the area of the Shaw's Market, 1477 Hyde Park Ave., late Wednesday night.
Police say somebody called the anonymous tip line to report a guy with a long gun there around 11:20 p.m. - more than two hours after the store had closed. Responding officers found a man there, with a bag, who did not seem to appreciate their arrival. Although he consented to a pat frisk, police say, he "became combative" when they started feeling the bag.
Officers were able to pat frisk the bag and felt an object consistent with the shape of a firearm. Young was placed into custody without further incident.
Officers removed a Stevens model 311, 12-gauge shotgun with an Obliterated Serial Number.
Anthony Young, 41, was charged with possession of a sawed off shotgun and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number, police say.
