Boston Police report arresting Larinso Myers, 69, yesterday morning after a search of his apartment at Council Tower, 2875 Washington St. in Roxbury, found "hundreds of prescription narcotics" and a loaded, high-capacity gun.
Myers, who has drug convictions dating to the early 1990s, was formally charged with several counts of possession of Class B, C and E drugs with intent to distribute as well as unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and unlawful possession of a high-capacity feeding device, police say.
Police say that officers with a search warrant entered Myers's apartment at 1:20 a.m. and found numerous bags full of various prescription narcotics pills, a Taurus PT111 PRO firearm loaded with 11 rounds of live ammunition, magazines for the gun, more ammunition, a stun gun and lots of cash.
A Roxbury Municipal Court judge set bail at $10,000, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Myers was convicted in 2010 on various distribution charges for a 2008 arrest that started when a state trooper pulled him out of his pickup partly because he was weaving across lanes, partly because he told the trooper he was heading from Lowell to Brockton - while heading north on 128 in Wakefield. He has twice appealed other convictions, one from the early 1990s, without success.
