17-year-old juvenile facing several charges after police find loaded gun in South Coast hotel room



FAIRHAVEN — Lt. Kevin Kobza reports that the Fairhaven Police Department has taken a juvenile into custody after police discovered he was carrying a concealed firearm inside the Seaport Inn.

On Saturday, at approximately 8:00 p.m., Fairhaven police officers responded to the Seaport Inn looking for a suspect in an unrelated attempted break-in case when they observed a male juvenile concealing a firearm in his waistband on surveillance cameras.

When officers confronted the juvenile, he fled on foot from the Seaport Inn. He was taken into custody a short distance away without incident.

The juvenile was charged with Misleading Police, Resisting Arrest, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.

Police located what is believed to be the concealed firearm, a loaded handgun, in the same hotel room where police had confronted the juvenile.

The male, who was identified as a 17-year-old juvenile, was later turned over to the Department of Youth Services. His name was not released due to his age.
