At about 9:23 PM on Monday, January 25, 2021, officers assigned to District D-4 (South End) conducted a traffic stop in the area of Melnea Cass Boulevard and Massachusetts Avenue in Roxbury that resulted in an onsite warrant arrest of Kelvin Curry, 33, of Dorchester and an onsite firearm arrest of Travis Curry, 35, also of Dorchester.

While on patrol in the area, officers observed a motor vehicle with a failed inspection sticker. Officers activated their emergency lights and sirens and safely stopped the motor vehicle.

A CJIS query of the driver, Kelvin Curry, revealed an active straight warrant out of Dorchester District Court for Threats to Commit a Crime. He was removed from the motor vehicle and placed under arrest.

In order to conduct a motor vehicle inventory search incident to arrest, officers asked the passengers to exit the motor vehicle at which time they observed the right jacket pocket of Travis Curry to be weighed down by a heavy object. Officers conducted a pat frisk of Travis Curry and felt a hard object which was consistent to a firearm.

Officers recovered a loaded Polymer 80 (P-80) 9mm, with one round in the chamber and nine rounds in the magazine. Travis Curry was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition.

Kelvin Curry and Travis Curry are both expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
