Two Arrested in Stolen MV. Loaded Firearm Recovered

On Saturday, January 27th, at approx. 1:10am, Officer Bossart was on routine patrol in the West Quincy section of the city. As part of that patrol, Officer Bossart drove through the parking lots of the baseball fields located at 299 Ricciuti Drive. As he entered the parking lot, he observed a gray Ford Expedition. The engine of the vehicle was running, but the vehicle was parked. Officer Bossart exited his cruiser and approached the vehicle. As he spoke to the operator, now identified as Amaru Mark, he observed two plastic sandwich bags containing marijuana on the center console. He explained to Mr. Mark and his passenger, now identified as Alethia Kindle, that no one is allowed to be in the lot after dark due to a city ordinance.

A query of the vehicle's license plate revealed that the vehicle was stolen from Hertz. Officer Bossart, who was now joined by other officers, instructed Mr. Mark to turn the vehicle off and exit the car. Both individuals were placed in handcuffs and secured in the back of a police cruiser. Officers located two folding knives on Ms. Kindle's person.

A search of the vehicle recovered a black plastic bag labeled "cookies" with marijuana in it. Officer McKim also located a "hide" in the center console area of the vehicle. A search of the the "hide" revealed a large amount of marijuana and a black semi-automatic firearm. The firearm had one 9mm round in the chamber and 8 additional rounds were located in the magazine. Upon further inspection of the firearm, it was determined that the serial number had been obliterated. Two digital scales and a large amount of plastic sandwich bags were also found in the void.

Alethia Kindle, 20, of Dorchester, was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possess Firearm with a Defaced Serial Number, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Receiving Stolen Motor Vehicle, Possession w/ Intent to Distribute Class D, and violation of the city ordinance of Being in Park/Playground 1 Hour After Sunset/1 Hour Before Sunrise
