ROXBURY –– A Dorchester man was arrested early Monday morning after police officers recovered a loaded firearm during a traffic stop, authorities said.

Erik D. Campbell, 39, faces firearm-related charges following his arrest at approximately 1:45 a.m. by officers assigned to District B-2 in Roxbury.

According to the police report, officers on patrol observed Campbell’s vehicle run a red light at the intersection of Mass Ave and Columbia Road.

A subsequent traffic stop revealed that Campbell’s driver’s license was suspended.

After issuing an exit order and arresting Campbell for operating without a license, officers conducted an inventory search of his vehicle.

During the search, they discovered a black and silver Kahr Arms model# CM40 firearm underneath the driver’s seat.

The gun was loaded with a magazine holding seven rounds, though none were in the chamber.

Campbell has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

He is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
