Large house party on Dunlap Street in Dorchester ends with two arrested, two loaded guns seized, police say

Boston Police report that officers making their second call on a house party, complete with DJ, at 35 Dunlap St. in Dorchester last night spotted a guy who looked as if he might be packing a gun:

Officers approached [Phillip Blain, 18] , who was now seated inside a parked motor vehicle, and observed a prominent bulge under the floor mat at Blain’s feet. Officer removed Blain from the motor vehicle, and under the floormat, officers recovered a loaded firearm. Officers then removed the driver of the vehicle, a 17-year-old juvenile, and recovered another loaded firearm.

The gun under Blain was a semi-automatic, 9-mm handgun with a magazine, and loaded with a total of 12 bullets, police say. The gun recovered from the other person, a Weymouth teen too young to have his name released, was a Jimenez Arms .380 firearm, loaded with a total of six rounds, police say.

Blain was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a large-capacity feeding device, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number and possession of a large-capacity firearm on a public way, police say. The 17-yer-old was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number, police say.

Police say officers had initially responded to noise complaints around 9:30 p.m. and that the DJ agreed to turn the music down. About an hour later, though, police got another loud-party call and this time ordered the DJ to shut down the 100-person party. Police say officers noticed Blain as they watched to make sure the party dispersed peacefully.

Innocent, etc.
