Boston man faces gun charges again

A 28-year-old Boston man pleaded not guilty to gun charges in Dorchester Municipal Court Tuesday after police allegedly found him carrying a firearm without a permit, according to a spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney’s office.

While responding to calls about gang activity near Columbia Road and Stanwood Street in Dorchester Monday night, officers saw Brandon Jesurum and an unidentified female enter Franklin Liquors, Boston police said.

When officers approached the entrance, they heard three unidentified men standing outside the store alert Jesurum to their presence, police said.

As the officers walked up to Jesurum in the store, he allegedly shielded the right side of his body and grabbed his waistband, according to police.

Officers searched Jesurum and discovered a loaded Smith & Wesson .357-caliber revolver in his waistband, police said.

When he could not produce a valid license to carry a firearm, the officers arrested him.

Jesurum was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm, and being an armed career criminal, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

Monday’s arrest marked the fourth time Jesurum has been charged with illegal firearm possession, said police.

Jesurum was held on $150,000 cash bail.

He is to return to court on March 26 for a pretrial conference, said Wark.
