ROXBURY — Officers from the Drug Control Unit and Anti-Crime Unit of District B-2 arrested Luis Fernando Guzman-Ortiz, 30, of Andover, on firearm-related charges after a routine traffic stop on Monday, Dec. 18.

At approximately 3:47 p.m., police patrolling the area of Washington Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard noticed a vehicle with a defective tail light.

The vehicle was subsequently parked in a restricted area in front of the police district headquarters.

After activating their emergency lights and sirens to initiate the stop, officers approached the vehicle.

A check of Guzman-Ortiz’s driver’s license revealed it was suspended, leading to his detention.

During a mandatory inventory search before towing the vehicle, officers discovered a SCCY 9mm firearm with nine rounds in the magazine inside the car.

Guzman-Ortiz now faces charges including unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and operating a vehicle with a suspended license.

He is scheduled for arraignment in Roxbury District Court.
