Boston police were working during the parade around 1:03 p.m. when someone told an officer they thought they saw the gun sticking out of the suspect’s waistband near 127 Tremont St., they said.

Officers went up to the teen and found the loaded 9 mm Radon handgun while performing a pat and frisk, according to police.

The juvenile also had three bags of marijuana, “assorted loose pills,” and cash, police said.

The teen’s arrest was one of six during the parade, police said.
