Arlington police arrested a 17-year-old from Cambridge on firearm and motor vehicle charges Tuesday, May 11, following an attempted traffic stop.

About 2 p.m., an Arlington officer was monitoring traffic in the area of Mass. Ave. and Pleasant Street and observed a Ford Escape allegedly commit a crosswalk violation, traveling through the crosswalk as a woman and child were attempting to cross.

The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The driver allegedly refused to stop and led the officer on a brief pursuit before turning onto Swan Place and reaching a dead end. Officers conducted a felony stop of the vehicle. The driver and a passenger were ordered to exit the vehicle and were each detained without further incident.

It was determined that the vehicle belonged to a car-sharing company. During an inventory of the vehicle officers located a loaded firearm with a high-capacity magazine under the driver's seat. During this search officers also recovered a bag of marijuana and a digital scale.

The driver was placed under arrest. The passenger was released from the scene and was not charged.

A juvenile male was charged with possession of a large-capacity firearm and feeding device without a license, unlawful possession of ammunition, failure to stop for police, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, speeding and failure to stop for a pedestrian in Crosswalk.

The teen was transported from the Arlington Police Department to an overnight holding facility, where he is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday morning, May 12.
