Boston Police report arresting two men on drug and gun charges on Blue Hill Avenue in Roxbury Monday night - one after he was pulled out of the trash can police say he tried hiding in.
Police say drug-unit officers spotted a car whose occupants they wanted to talk to around 10:10 p.m. when they radioed for help in stopping the car. Officers in a marked cruiser quickly arrived - and quickly got hit by the car at Blue Hill Avenue and Fayston Street.
Following the collision, both occupants of the vehicle attempted to flee on foot, Jacari Cosgrove, 23, of Dorchester, was immediately placed into custody. The second suspect, Jermiah Boswell, 21, of Boston was located hiding inside of a trash barrel in the alleyway next to 276 Blue Hill Avenue.
Police say officers found a CZ P10C 9-mm gun next to the front passenger seat in the car, loaded with one round in the chamber and 14 in the magazine. Police say they also found a Polymer 80 gun - and the 31 rounds it was loaded with. Both guns had laser pointers, police say.
Both men were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, unlawful possession of a high-capacity feeding device and resisting arrest. Boswell was also charged with trespassing - the owner of the trash barrel hadn't given him permission to go Oscar.
