Old Ammo Found in Deceased Relative's West Roxbury Basement
It is common for the Boston Police to receive ammunition or firearms found when cleaning out a relative's home.
A woman turned in a bunch of old ammunition rounds after discovering it while cleaning out her deceased relative's Weld Street home.
On Sept. 4 around 6:30 p.m., a relative brought in to Boston Police District E-5: two boxes of Kleanbore .38 caliber; one box of Colt Police Positive ammo containing 50 rounds and one box containing 21 rounds; one box of .30 caliber M1 carbine ammo containing 17 rounds; and 90 loose .38 caliber rounds and 11 loose .22 caliber rounds.
The ammunition appears to have been stored in the basement of the home for many decades and were in poor condition, according to a Boston Police report.
