BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - State troopers conducting additional patrols in Brockton are already making a difference, arresting three men Monday night and seizing a loaded gun, officials said.
Hours after Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz received approval from additional state police patrols in the wake of a sudden surge in street violence, troopers assisted Brockton cops with a car chase about 4:45 p.m. and helped arrest three of the four men who jumped out of the vehicle and fled the scene on foot, according to Cruz’s office.
Delven Carvalho-Centeio, 19, of Brockton; Samael Mathieu, 21, of Brockton, and Daniel Barbosa, 23, of Central Falls, Rhode Island, were arrested on weapons charges.
Police recovered a 9mm Smith and Wesson firearm that had been reported stolen and was found loaded with one round in the chamber.
All three men are expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
