Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man yesterday afternoon who was already wanted on seven warrants from different courts.
Police say that when officers spotted Tramonte Queen, 22, in a car at the intersection of New England Avenue with Woodrow Avenue and Norfolk Street around 1:40 p.m., they went to stop him - which they did after what police say was a brief chase.
Mr. Queen was also in illegal possession of a semi-automatic handgun with an obliterated serial number and an extended magazine loaded with four .380 rounds of ammunition. Additionally, Mr. Queen was found to be in possession of a total of eighty-six loose rounds of ammunition, forty-nine live 9mm cartridges, thirty-seven live .380 cartridges, and one spent .380 cartridge casing. He also possessed a folding knife and a hunting knife.
Now, in addition to answering to all the warrants in all those courts, Queen faces new charges in Dorchester District Court of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device, carrying a dangerous weapon, driving without a license, failure to stop for police and reckless operation, police say.
