BROCKTON — In a coordinated effort on Tuesday, Brockton Police Detectives, Randolph Police, and a State Trooper successfully apprehended a man and confiscated a loaded handgun believed to be connected to the recent armed robbery of a US Postal Service worker in Randolph.

The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Soul Gagnon, was located inside an Acura Sedan in a parking lot at the intersection of North Main and Willow Streets around 10:30 a.m. The vehicle matched the description of the getaway car used in the robbery.

As detectives and the trooper executed a search warrant, they found Gagnon armed with a .40 caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol, which he wore on his waist.

The handgun was loaded with one bullet in the chamber and an additional 14 rounds in the magazine.

Gagnon now faces multiple charges including unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a firearm illegally, unlawful possession of a large capacity feeding device, and resisting arrest.

The swift action by the involved police agencies potentially prevented another violent crime and ensured the safety of the community.
