BOSTON (CBS) – A Randolph man is facing weapons charges after Boston police say they found a grenade launcher in the trunk of his car.
Drug Unit officers followed the car that 22-year-old Michael Stroll was driving shortly after witnessing some sort of transaction taking place at the Shore Plaza Housing Development.
While following the car, officers questioned a man that Stroll had dropped off. He told them Stroll was trying to sell him ammunition.
Police eventually stopped Stroll for a turn signal violation and found he was driving without a license.
During an inventory search of the car, officers opened the trunk and found a grenade launcher, a handgun, and two large brown ammunition boxes containing close to a thousand loose rounds.
Stroll is charged with the Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawful Possession of a Large Capacity Weapon and Operating a Motor Vehicle without a License.
