At about 6:49 PM on Thursday, July 8, 2021, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) made an onsite warrant arrest that resulted in the recovery of a firearm in the area of Dudley Street and Warren Street in Roxbury.

Officers were on patrol in the area of Nubian Square when they observed the suspect, Jahkaii Graham-Gilliam, 22, of Mattapan who had an active straight warrant issued out of East Boston Court for Larceny from a Building.

Officers performed a CJIS query to ensure the warrant was still active. Once the warrant was confirmed, officers approached the suspect to inform him that he was being placed under arrest. At that time, Graham-Gilliam attempted to remove a black backpack off his shoulders, prompting officers to conduct a pat frisk. Officers recovered a loaded Ruger P95 9mm with one round in the chamber and eleven rounds in the magazine.

Jahkaii Graham-Gilliam was arrested and charged with the following; Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Second and Subsequent Offense, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm with an Obliterated Serial Number and Unlawful Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device. He is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
