Boston street worker faces gun charges

A Boston street worker is facing gun charges, authorities said. Officers found two guns, ammunition and drug paraphernalia when they searched the Dorchester home of Sean Goode, 31, on Friday afternoon, according to Boston Police Officer James Kenneally.

Goode was arrested on charges of illegal gun and ammunition possessions and for possessing a gun with altered serial numbers, Kenneally said.

Goode, a Fayston Street resident, is scheduled to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court on Monday, said Suffolk County District Attorney spokesman Jake Wark.

Authorities said more details are expected to be released at the arraignment.

Street workers are deployed in Boston’s troubled neighborhoods to try to direct youth and gang members away from crime and violence. Some are employed by the City of Boston, others by The Boston Foundation.

Officials at the foundation said Goode is not employed there. City officials did not respond to messages left Sunday evening.

In January, a man reportedly employed as a street worker by the City of Boston, Jeremy Harrison, was charged with illegal gun posession and failure to secure a gun with a minor present after a woman was shot and seriously wounded inside a Dorchester apartment.

About one week earlier, a Boston street worker hired by the Boston Foundation was arrested after police allegedly found him sitting in a car with an unlicensed firearm and cocaine inside the car, officials said. That man, Marcus Merritt, was also charged with engaging in sex for a fee.
