One Less Gun: At about 12:25 AM on Thursday, December 31, 2020, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan) made an onsite arrest and recovered a loaded firearm in the area of Millet Street and Athelwold Street in Dorchester. While on patrol, officers observed a motor vehicle drive through two stop signs in the area of the aforementioned location. Based off of the violation, officers activated their lights and sirens in an effort to initiate a traffic stop on Greenwood Street. As officers approached the vehicle on foot, the operator accelerated and attempted to flee from officers down Greenwood Street. The fleeing vehicle got stuck behind another car before turning left and traveling up the wrong way on Fowler Street where again the vehicle was blocked by a lawful driver coming down the street. The vehicle came to a stop in front of 77 Fowler Street where the operator exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Officers pursued the suspect to the rear of 69 Fowler Street where the suspect jumped over a fence and down a steep embankment into the backyard of 28 Harlem Street. The suspect fled onto Glenway Street where additional units located him and placed him under arrest. While retracing the suspect’s path of flight, officers recovered a black Sig Sauer P226 .40 caliber firearm loaded with eight rounds of live ammunition.

Officers arrested Rudy Antenor Jr., 34-years-old, of Randolph. Antenor Jr. is expected to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court on charges of Firearm Violation with Three Prior Violent/Drug Crimes, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm Subsequent Offense, Possession of a Firearm with a Defaced Serial Number, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Failure to Stop for Police, and Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended License.
