Boston Police busted two men in Mattapan on gun charges after they pulled the pair over for traffic violations.
Officers pulled over the car, where the driver initially refused to hand over his license. They determined that the driver had a suspended license and charged Terrance Gandy, 37, of Boston, with operating a motor vehicle after a suspended/revoked license.
While they had Gandy pulled over, officers say they saw a can of pepper spray in the passenger’s lap. They put the spray out of reach and ordered the man out of the car. They patted him own and found a loaded Sig Sauer P250 handgun.
Officers found that the passenger, Gary Lee, 39, of Norwood had an active warrant out for unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was arrested on the strength of that warrant and was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammo, carrying a loaded gun and unlawfully possessing a large capacity feeding device as well as being a career criminal.
