About 6:46am, on Thursday, February 25, 2021, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a radio call for a motor vehicle blocking a driveway at 86 Munroe Street. Officers were advised that the caller reported a vehicle was blocking the driveway, and the person inside of the vehicle might be sleeping. Prior to the officer’s arrival, the operator moved the vehicle and parked it across the street.
Responding officers recognized the license plate as belonging to a vehicle that was reported stolen the night before, and later fled a traffic stop. Upon arrival, the officers observed one male occupant, later identified as Tyreek Woodley, 21, of Boston, sitting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, which was running. Woodley appeared to be asleep, so the officer knocked on the driver side window but was unable to wake him. As the officer opened the unlocked driver side door, a green fanny pack fell to the ground. As the fanny pack fell, the officer heard what he believed to be a metal object strike the ground.
Woodley was removed from the vehicle and placed in handcuffs. Further investigation into the fanny pack revealed a firearm. The firearm, a Taurus Millennium PT 111 Pro, was loaded with (1) round of ammunition in the chamber and (12) rounds on the magazine.
A query of Woodley’s MA Drivers License revealed that it was suspended. Tyreek Woodley was arrested and charged with Receiving Stolen Motor Vehicle, Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended License, Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a License, and Possession of a Large Capacity Firearm. Woodley was also issued a MA Uniform Citation. He is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
