STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 16-year-old Stamford boy was arrested last week after police found him with a loaded semiautomatic pistol that had the serial numbers filed off, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police told the Stamford Advocate that a member of the Narcotics and Organized Crime Squad heard Friday afternoon that the teen was walking around downtown with the pistol in his waistband. Police knew the teen from several previous interactions, and located him on Bedford Street with a group of other youths, the Stamford Advocate reported.

Police searched the teen and found a loaded .40 caliber Taurus semiautomatic pistol tucked into his waistband, according to the Stamford Advocate. In addition to nine bullets in the magazine, the teen also had three bullets in his pocket, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The teen was taken into custody and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit and altering the identification numbers of a firearm, the Stamford Advocate reported.
