Juvenile Charged with Firearms Offenses in Pittsfield
A Pittsfield juvenile is facing firearms charges after officers were sent to investigate a noise complaint on Tuesday.
Pittsfield Police received a noise complaint early Tuesday morning believed to be originating from the McKay Street Parking Deck in Pittsfield. According to the police department media report, Officers responding at around 5:30 Tuesday morning encountered 3 juvenile males that were seen loitering on the top level of the parking deck. One of the individuals appeared to have been the operator of a vehicle he was occupying.
The Patrol Officer that initially spoke with this individual obtained limited cooperation and made observations that indicated the individual may be in possession of a weapon. A second Patrol Officer arrived to assist at the scene, at which time a firearm was discovered in the juveniles’ waistband. At that point, the other 2 juveniles yelled at the officers and then ran from the area.
The two individuals that fled the scene were located and detained in a lower level of the parking deck a short time later. Officers then immediately retraced the path by which the juveniles fled and located several heroin baggies, believed to have been discarded as they ran.
Because the drugs were not found in the juvenile's possession, and their disposal of the drugs was not witnessed, no charges were filed and they were returned to the custody of their parents. The juvenile found with the firearm was arrested and charged with Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a License, as well as two counts of Possession of Ammunition without an FID Card. The charged individual, whose name was not released, was arraigned and held without bail. A Dangerousness hearing was to have taken place on Thursday.
