At about 8:52 PM PM on Wednesday July 21, 2021, members of the BPD Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Marcus Dixon, 35, of Darbey, PA, on firearm related charges during an investigation in the area of 4 Forest Street in Roxbury. The suspect was placed in custody without incident after officers recovered a loaded firearm from inside a ‘fanny pack’ which had been discarded by the suspect as the officers approached to speak with him.

The suspect has since been arraigned in Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Carrying a Loaded Firearm.
