Worcester Suspect Honest in Explaining Pellet Gun

Police-Arrest2

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Worcester man charged with breaking into a vacant home had an honest answer when police asked him why he was carrying a pellet gun. The suspect told officers he was denied a permit to carry a real gun.

Chief Gary Gemme says such honesty in a criminal suspect is unusual, but added that it’s proof that “the system we have in place works.”

Gemme tells the Telegram & Gazette that pellet guns are still dangerous and the one carried by the suspect in Wednesday’s break-in was indistinguishable from a real weapon.

John Boguzis was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and carrying a dangerous weapon in connection with the break-in at an under-renovation home reported at about 5 a.m. Wednesday. His arraignment is pending.
