Police allegedly found a Calico M-100 rifle and 22-caliber ammunition, neither of which Laboy had a license to possess, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said.

The M-100 can hold up to 100 rounds of ammunition in a special clip, according to the manufacturer’s website.

Laboy was arraigned Wednesday in South Boston District Court, where Judge ­Michael Bolden ­imposed $20,000 cash bail.

Laboy is scheduled to return to court Jan. 29.
