STAMFORD, Conn. — A 17-year-old Stamford teen was caught with a loaded semiautomatic pistol on Friday, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police told the Stamford Advocate that officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime Squad were on patrol and approached a residence that has received numerous complaints of people drinking and doing drugs on the front stoop. When they approached, they saw the 17-year-old reach into his waistband, and when they patted him down, they found a .380 caliber semiautomatic pistol, the Stamford Advocate reported.

The gun was loaded and the serial numbers were filed off, according to the Stamford Advocate. The teen was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit and altering the serial numbers of a pistol, and was taken to the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center, the Stamford Advocate reported.

The teen was the second in a week to be found with a loaded pistol in the city, according to the Stamford Advocate. Last Wednesday a 19-year-old resident was found with a loaded semiautomatic, the Stamford Advocate reported.
