A Cambridge man was arrested after troopers found a gun in his car during a motor vehicle stop in Everett, State Police said.
State Police were patrolling Route 99 about 8 p.m. Tuesday when they saw a man ignore a traffic signal. They pulled him over for the motor vehicle violation and allegedly found a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in his car, State Police said.
David Humberto, 24, could not produce the proper license for his gun, so troopers took him into custody.
Humberto is being charged with unlawful possession of a large-capacity firearm, carrying a firearm without a license, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device, and improper storage of a large-capacity firearm. He was also charged with possession of ammunition without a firearms identification card, which is his third offense of this kind, State Police said.
Humberto is to be arraigned this afternoon in Malden District Court.Jacqueline Tempera can be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on twitter @jacktemp
