Man Arrested for Illegal Gun Possession in Worcester

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

 

A man was arrested in the area of Chandler Street for possession of an unlicensed and loaded weapon.

Anthony Wilson, 26, was arrested and charged with carrying a loaded firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without an FID Card, and a stop sign violation

The Incident

On Friday, January 18 at about 12:24 a.m., a Worcester Police Officer was on patrol in the area of Wellington St. The officer noticed a gray Jeep fail to stop at a stop sign at the corner of Wellington and Chandler streets, so he pulled behind the vehicle and initiated a motor vehicle stop. The vehicle initially sped up before taking an abrupt right turn into the BP Gas Station at 30 Chandler St. The officer noticed the driver of the vehicle, later identified as Wilson of Oxford, frantically reaching in the area of the glove box.

The officer got out of the cruiser and approached the Jeep. As he did, he noticed Wilson shut the glove box and quickly turn toward the officer. The officer asked Wilson for his license and registration, but Mr. Wilson was breathing heavily and refused to show his hands. At this point, the officer was concerned that Mr. Wilson was concealing a weapon. He returned to his cruiser and waited for other units to arrive.

When additional officers arrived, they asked Wilson to step out of the vehicle. The officers conducted a frisk of Wilson and of the vehicle. They located a loaded handgun in the glovebox, where Wilson had been reaching previously.

Wilson did not possess a license to carry a firearm and was placed under arrest.
