Boston police arrested two men and recovered an illegal firearm and drugs from a vehicle in South Boston on Tuesday afternoon.
Christian Baez, 26, of Dorchester and Wilden D. Suazo, 29, of Mattapan were arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of a large capacity feeding device, and possession with intent to distribute a Class D drug (marijuana), according to a press release on bpdnews.com.
Police said Baez and Suazo were seen driving around in a red vehicle that appeared to be circling around the vicinity of D Street over the course of 2½ hours.
After pulling the vehicle over, officers noticed that one of them had a rolled-up ski mask in his pocket and there were vodka nips in the glove box of the vehicle, police said.
Police reported that they “continued to nervously glance” at a backpack in the backseat of the car, and when the officers patted the backpack, they felt what they believed to be a firearm inside.
Police said they recovered a loaded black semi-automatic firearm from the backpack as well as two clear plastic bags what they believed to be marijuana, along with a digital scale, a box of clear plastic sandwich bags, a pair of scissors, a ledger, and over $2,200.
