Boston Police report arresting a Lowell man and seizing his mobile drugstore outside the city's Southampton Street shelter around 2:45 p.m. on Saturday.
Police report seizing "a loaded .40 caliber Taurus handgun equipped with a laser sight, over 500 pills or pieces of alprazolam, 48 suboxone strips, several plastic bags containing large amounts of fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana."
Jay Candelario, 40, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, trafficking Class A and Class B drugs and possession of Class C and Class D drugs with intent to distribute, police say.
Live Boston reports that shortly before 6 p.m. on Sunday, police found a man stabbed in the back outside the shelter. Because of the severity of his injuries, the homicide unit was called in, just in case, although he is now expected to recover.
On Jan. 4, a man was stabbed to death outside the shelter, six months after two other men were fatally stabbed, one right outside the shelter, one nearby on Massachusetts Avenue.
On Jan. 17, police arrested a man they say had both a loaded gun and a knife as he sold crack from his motorcycle.
