Three teens charged with Mission Hill carjacking; nabbed after their new wheels got caught in traffic

Boston Police report arresting two 14-year-olds and a 16-year-old on charges they used loaded guns to steal a car Thursday afternoon.

Police report the three showed guns to the owner of a Honda Accord at 75 St. Alphonsus St. around 4:15 p.m. and took off. Not long after, a police supervisor driving near the Heath Street rotary at the Mildred Hailey Apartments, about three-quarters of a mile away, spotted the car stuck in traffic a couple car lengths ahead of him, pointed towards Columbus Avenue.

Officers exited their marked cruiser and walked towards the motor vehicle. The suspects observed the officers, and all three immediately fled on foot. Officers were able to quickly place two suspects into custody, and the third suspect fled the area clutching his waistband.

A foot pursuit ensued, and officers were able to place the suspect into handcuffs. With the assistance of the K-9 Unit, officers located a firearm from inside a fanny pack from the suspect’s flight path. The firearm was later determined to be a Ghost gun with ten rounds in the magazine.

Officers searched the motor vehicle, and located a firearm from inside. The firearm was later determined to be a Ghost gun with one round in the chamber, and five rounds in the magazine. A second fanny pack was recovered from one of the suspects with a live round of ammunition inside of it.

The three were charged with being delinquent for carjacking, illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and illegal possession of a large-capacity feeding device.

For a ½ mile ride.

Maybe next time they will bikejack a bicycle instead as the lanes are free and clear for a getaway.

File this under a bumpah to bumpah captchah.

Very rarely see the bike lanes with more that just a few cyclists.

They'll have to dodge the Ubers, Amazon trucks and people who are just going in for a second I promise.

If you're willing to bike recklessly, in heavy traffic you can definitely evade a car. Bikes can slip through gaps and go over medians and up stairs and such.

In more prosaic circumstances, I enjoy being able to walk my bike past construction sites rather than take a long detour. Or, just get off and walk when there's a huge traffic jam.

(But you're also definitely not wrong about the bike lanes not being "clear"!)

This is when I see the good in Boston's traffic congestion.

Teenage thugs are getting ghost guns now; WTF? I hope they meant the serial numbers were filed off and not that the weapons were manufactured in someone's home workshop.
