1 min read

ROXBURY — A routine traffic stop on Sunday night led to the arrest of a Lynn man after officers recovered a loaded firearm from the vehicle he was operating.

At about 9 p.m., on March 3, officers from District B-2 patrolling near Seaver Street and Humboldt Avenue observed a vehicle abruptly exiting and re-entering a parking lot.

The driver, later identified as Marquice Rivera, 25, parked the car and quickly walked away while the vehicle was still running.

When officers engaged Rivera, who was unable to provide a driver’s license, he was placed under arrest.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a passenger who also could not produce a valid driver’s license.

During the vehicle search, officers found a Ruger LCP 380 firearm with one round in the chamber and six rounds in the magazine.

Rivera now faces charges including unlawful possession of a firearm and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

He is scheduled for arraignment at Roxbury District Court.

The passenger was released at the scene without charges.
