Man pulled over for ignoring a stop sign in East Boston is arrested for the two guns loaded with 47 bullets he had on him, DA says

An East Boston man faces a variety of gun charges for the two guns, one loaded with 31 bullets and a laser attachment, he had stowed in his sweatshirt and sweatpants, that state troopers found when they pulled him over for bombing past a stop sign while making a left turn in East Boston Monday afternoon, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Takhari Robinson, 22, was charged with illegal possession of firearms, illegal possession of ammunition, possession of large-capacity magazines, illegal possession of loaded firearms and several traffic violations, the DA's office reports.

East Boston Judge Margaret Albertson declared Robinson "dangerous," but released him on the same $5,000 bail he paid after his arrest, according to court records. She also ordered him to home confinement with GPS monitoring at least through Feb. 29, when he is scheduled for his next court appointment, the DA's office says.

According to prosecutors, state troopers patrolling Maverick Square shortly after 1:20 p.m. watched a white GMC Terrain turn left onto London from Decatur without stopping for the stop sign there.

When the troopers pulled the vehicle over, the driver, later identified as Robinson, exited and began to walk quickly away. Robinson continued to walk away despite multiple commands to stop. Troopers noticed Robinson "blading," or turning his upper body away from their sight lines. When the troopers apprehended Robinson they found a black Glock 17 9mm pistol with one round in the chamber and 30 rounds in the magazine, outfitted with a fixed laser attachment, in his sweatshirt pocket. Troopers found a second gun, a Glock 9mm with 16 rounds in the magazine, in Robinson’s left sweatpants pocket.

Innocent, etc.
