Boston police arrested an 18-year-old man on gun charges in Roxbury Tuesday night when police found him with a loaded handgun after a wild foot chase, police said.

Takari Hobbs, of Mattapan, was arrested near 20 McGreevey Way around 10:15 p.m. when officers noticed him among a group of people “known to them,” Boston police said in a statement. Hobbs ran away from the officers after he saw them, police said.

“As officers exited their cruiser, they observed the male to grab his waistband and immediately flee the area in a full sprint in an attempt to evade officers. The male continued away from officers with his arms pinned to his waist,” the statement said.

Hobbs ran through a courtyard on Prentiss Street towards Parker Street before officers stopped him on McGreevey Way, police said.

“Officers located a Smith & Wesson DA .45 caliber revolver loaded with six rounds of live ammunition from the suspect’s pocket,” the statement said.

Hobbs was arrested and is scheduled to be arraigned in the Roxbury Division of Boston Municipal Court on charges of carrying a loaded firearm without a license, carrying a firearm without a license, and unlawful possession of ammunition.

This is why we need universal background checks. If the guy who sold it to him had just done a background check, the
transaction would never have gone through, and one dangerous gun would not be in the hands of a criminal. It's important to feel safe !

Looks like an original Model 25. Nice gun. I have one but with the Hillary Hole.
Model 25 is 45 Colt right? Also the 25 had an extractor shroud.....the one pictures has an exposed extractor.

That looks like a 1917 chambered in 45acp. Also has the lanyard loop on the butt.....that's a dead giveaway that it's a 1917.

I'd love to own one.

Obviously someone kept that pistola in great condition
I bet the rightful owner is pissed he got ripped off
Now he knows someone involved in the theft, even if he was the end recipient
Maybe some street justice will come to this punk before the courts deal with him
One can only hope
