A New Hampshire man has been indicted in connection with illegally possessing two firearms and three large capacity magazines and allegedly intending to sell narcotics at Encore Boston Harbor, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Matthew Gorman, 32, of New Hampshire, was indicted Thursday, Feb. 11, by a Middlesex County Grand Jury on Possession of a Large Capacity Firearm (2 counts), Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device (3 counts), Possession of a Firearm Without a License Outside Home Or Business (2 counts), and Possession of a Loaded Firearm (2 counts), as well as Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class B Substance (Methamphetamine) (1 count).
He will be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court at a later date.
Pursuant to an investigation by the Massachusetts State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit at Encore Boston Harbor, Gorman was stopped in a motor vehicle on the casino premises and found to be in illegal possession of two semi-automatic pistols and three large capacity magazines. Gorman is also alleged to have been in possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, which authorities allege he was intending to distribute.
All of these charges are allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
