Boston Police responded to a radio call Sunday morning for a disturbance on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain. By the end of the day, they had arrested two individuals, including a juvenile, on gun and drug possession charges.

According to Boston Police, at about 10:20 a.m. on Sunday, April 3, officers responded to a radio call for a disturbance at 3148 Washington St., and placed Sherdrick Harris, 53, of Jamaica Plain, under arrest for Possession of Class B Drugs. While inside the apartment, officers reportedly observed a large amount of drug paraphernalia and froze the apartment, pending the issuance of a search warrant.

Early that afternoon, at about 12:50 p.m., officers stopped a 16-year-old male from Dorchester who was attempting to enter the apartment through a back door. During a pat frisk, officers reportedly recovered a loaded Colt .45 caliber Series 80 Gold Cup National Match Mark IV handgun, equipped with a red laser sight, from the waistband area of his pants. The suspect was placed into custody; officers report later recovering four bags of crack cocaine packaged for sale, and $114, from the suspect. He will be arraigned in West Roxbury Juvenile Court on charges of Delinquent to Wit: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Possession of Class B Drugs.

Police were not finished: At about 8:30 p.m., detectives executed a search warrant for the Washington Street apartment, which reportedly led to the recovery of a loaded Walther P38 handgun, a small bag of marijuana, a small bag of heroin and 17 pills of a prescription drug. As a result, the adult suspect will be facing additional drug and weapons charges in West Roxbury District Court.
