Fall River Police Arrest Youths for Stolen Gun, Drugs
FALL RIVER — Fall River police yesterday seized a stolen firearm and drugs from a County Street apartment, resulting in the arrest of four city youths.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested along with 21-year-old Nicholas Frizado, 20-year-old Makenze Frizado, and Jay Johnson, also 20, on drugs charges.
Nicholas Frizado is also charged with possessing an unlicensed, large-capacity firearm and possessing ammunition and stolen property.
Police said on Wednesday, members of the department's Emergency Services Unit, which acts in a similar role to a SWAT team, searched the home in the 300 block of County Street.
Detectives said they found an unlicensed Glock model 17 pistol along with a loaded magazine during the search.
Authorities later discovered that the gun had been reported stolen out of Virginia in 2015, according to police.
Detectives also said they found around two pounds of suspected marijuana, around five grams of suspected cocaine, and around 3.5 grams of suspected crack cocaine.
The search was based on information from the vice intelligence and gang unit, with help from a Boston-based gang task force.
