Man who was arrested in March on gun charges is arrested again on gun charges, but this time while wearing an ankle bracelet, police say

Boston Police report a tip that a man awaiting trial on gun charges was walking around with another gun proved correct last evening.

Police say officers went looking for Andray Love, 29, around 6:30 p.m. as a result of a tip and found him at Columbia Road and Buttonwood Street in Dorchester:

Officers noted that the individual was walking in such a way as if to suggest he was in possession of a firearm as he continued to look around nervously while frequently clutching an object in his waist area. Moreover, officers specifically noted an easily discernable bulge in the suspect’s right hip area and, the fact that, he was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet on his ankle. While surveilling the suspect, officers observed the suspect enter a motor vehicle. At this point, officers activated their lights and sirens and stopped the car in the area of in the area of Columbia Road and Buttonwood Street. While approaching the car, officers observed the suspect hastily bend over in such a way as if to suggest he was trying to hide something. After ordering the suspect to show his hands, officers quickly pat frisked the suspect whereupon a loaded firearm was found tucked inside the suspect’s right waist area.

Officers confiscated the 9-mm Ruger P89DC, then charged Love with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm on a public way.

In March, Love and another man were arrested on a variety of gun-related charges after, police say, officer found them and a 9-mm gun loaded with 11 rounds in an idling SUV on Sojourner Truth Way in Roxbury.

To all bostonians it is incredibly important that you become more active and the subject matter of gun possessions and repeat offenders

There is something inherently wrong with our jurisprudence system. It is still broken and then cannot be fair and balanced.

I'm sure our DA will go easy on him.

I'd point you to the crimes the current DA has said she won't prosecute, and gun crimes are not on the list, but you obviously don't care, so no point in my wasting my time. If anybody else wants to read up on it, let me know.

And never mind what you said I you said. The wording is your insinuation that she will not prosecute this individual to the full extent of the law.

I personally encourage you to watch this particular case and let's see what the results are and then you can report back to us all.

I can't say I supported DA Rollins positions on prosecution. I do admire her for standing her ground and going against the status quo. However we certainly have to try something incredibly different and something out of the box the current system is certainly broken and we all know this. I currently support DA Rollins position on prosecution up until it doesn't work then we have to try something else. Going along with the status quo is unhealthy to people of color.

I wasn't insinuating anything, if I wanted to say the DA wouldn't prosecute I would have said so, Going easy on a defendant is common and happens every day in the courts. It's probably why this guy was still on the streets awaiting trial.

He's tired of obeying existing gun laws but promises to obey any new ones.

...that I'm not a cop. Because if I were, in a situation like this I'd probably open the conversation with:

"Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you happy to see me?"
