NEW BEDFORD — A routine traffic stop resulted in the arrest of a Brockton man and the seizure of an unlicensed handgun on May 4, according to the City of New Bedford Police Department.

During the early evening, Officer Alan Kubik was patrolling near the Blue Meadows housing development when he noticed a vehicle with heavily tinted windows on Rockdale Avenue.

The vehicle eventually stopped in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot, where Kubik approached and conducted a traffic stop.

The car had two occupants, including a passenger identified as Jazziah Grisset-Watson, 20, of Pine Grove, Brockton.

An investigation at the scene led to the discovery of a loaded .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in Jazziah’s possession.

He was arrested after it was determined he did not have a license for the firearm.

Grisset-Watson now faces several charges, including unlicensed possession of a high-capacity firearm and ammunition.

The driver of the vehicle was cited for the window tint violation and was permitted to leave.
