Massachusetts State Troopers on Friday evening seized an unlawfully-carried firearm and arrested a suspected member of the motorcycle club known as the Outlaws.
At about 6:15 p.m., troopers assigned to the Massachusetts State Police Troop D Community Action Team observed two motorcycles travelling much faster than the posted speed limit of 40 miles per hour on West Chestnut Street in the city of Brockton. Their estimated speed was near 70 miles per hour.
As troopers activated their emergency lights in an attempt to stop the motorcycles one of them fled at a high rate of speed toward West Bridgewater. A short time later, troopers located the motorcycle and its operator, identified as KENNETH MCDONALD, 58 of Whitman on Manley Street in West Bridgewater.
As a result of an investigation, a BERSA SA .45 firearm fully loaded with 7 rounds, including one in the chamber was located on MCDONALD’s person. MCDONALD does not legally possess a license to carry a firearm in Massachusetts.
MCDONALD was placed under arrest and transported to the State Police Middleboro Barracks and charged with the following offenses:
1. Carrying/possessing of a Firearm without a license;
2. Carrying a loaded firearm and firearm violation with 2nd Offense; and issued a citation warning for speeding.
MCDONALD was bailed on $500.00 and will be arraigned Monday in Brockton District Court.
