Revere Search Warrant Leads to Gun and Drug Seizure

BOSTON, November 17, 2017— A Revere man was arraigned this week for being an armed career criminal after Revere Police recovered a firearm, a stun gun, and drugs at his home, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

NELSON AGUILAR (D.O.B. 8/12/94) of Revere was arraigned in Chelsea District Court Tuesday on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of an electric stun gun, possession with intent to distribute a Class B substance, possession with intent to distribute a Class D substance, and being a Level II armed career criminal.  According to prosecutors, Aguilar has prior convictions for assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.

Prosecutors requested that bail be set in the amount of $50,000 and that Aguilar’s open bail be revoked in two cases pending in Chelsea District Court; those cases charge assault with a dangerous weapon, threats and unlawful possession of ammunition.   Judge Jean Curran imposed $25,000 bail and revoked Aguilar’s open bail.

During the course of an investigation into narcotics distribution, Revere Police on Tuesday morning executed a search warrant at Aguilar’s Marshall Street residence.  On a desk inside Aguilar’s bedroom, officers observed a pile of money totaling $1,270 and a bag containing 46 Oxycodone pills.  A search of the bedroom also recovered a loaded .380 caliber semi-automatic firearm, additional ammunition, a stun gun, a cloth mask, more than three-quarters of a pound of marijuana, 12 cell phones, two digital scales, and plastic baggies consistent with those used in drug distribution.

“These items, when viewed together, paint a clear picture of the violence that accompanies drug distribution,” Conley said.

Aguilar is represented by Anthony Fugate.  He returns to court Dec. 7.
