Boston Police: Man In Wheelchair Sitting On Guns

By  | 

(AP) Boston Police investigating an armed robbery lifted a man out of a wheelchair and found he was sitting on three guns, including two with high capacity magazines and one with a laser sight. Police said they were led to an apartment building in the city's South Boston neighborhood by two men who said they were robbed of their cell phones Friday.

The men said they were threatened by a teenager with a gun and saw another man in a window of the building holding a gun.

Police searched several individuals, including a 22-year-old man, who was sitting in a wheelchair. Police said when they lifted him out of the wheelchair they found the guns.

The man was set to be arraigned Monday on charges of illegal possession of guns and ammunition.
