Shortly before 1 p.m. on September 8, Trooper Paul Martin, assigned to State Police Middleboro, was patrolling Main Street in Brockton when he overhead a Be On the Lookout, or BOLO, regarding the operator of a red Honda Pilot wanted for threating a person with a firearm.
At approximately 1:15 p.m., Trooper Martin observed the vehicle drive by him, at which point he activated his emergency lights and stopped it. After requesting backup, Trooper Martin exited his cruiser and identified the operator as TRESEAN JEFFERSON, 21, of Brockton.
Upon the arrival of several detectives from the Brockton Police Department, JEFFERSON was removed from the vehicle. During a pat/frisk of his person, a firearm was located on his waistband. The firearm did not contain a serial number and was classified as a “ghost gun”. JEFFERSON licensed to carry firearms and has recent firearms violation charges. He was placed under arrest and transported to the Middleboro Barracks for booking where a bail commissioner set bail at $5,000. Detectives from Brockton Police will be filing for additional charges related to the initial incident. JEFFERSON was scheduled for arraignment at Brockton District Court for the following charges:
Illegal Possession of a Firearm; and
Possession of Ammunition without FID Card.
