At approximately 1:20 a.m. on Sunday Trooper Jason Rami, assigned to State Police-Tunnels, was stationary observing traffic on Rutherford Ave in Charlestown. At that time he observed a Kia Forte missing a license plate then caught up to it and activated his blue lights to initiate a motor vehicle stop.

Upon the vehicle stopping Trooper Rami approached the driver’s side and identified the operator as DEJAH JENKINS-MINUS, 21, of Boston. Trooper Rami gathered her information and returned to his cruiser to conduct an electronic RMV inquiry. The results of the inquiry revealed the registration was revoked and the vehicle was uninsured. JENKINS-MINUS was informed her vehicle was going to be towed from the scene.

JENKINS-MINUS, along with her passenger, identified as LEONARD ROBINSON, 21, of Dorchester, were asked to exit the vehicle to facilitate a tow inventory prior to it being removed from the scene. During the inventory Trooper Rami located a loaded Walther PK .380 pistol on the floor in the passenger area. Neither occupant in the vehicle is licensed to carry firearms.

JENKINS-MINUS and ROBINSON were placed under arrest and transported to the Tunnels Barracks for booking. A bail commissioner was contacted and set bail at $10,000 for JENKINS-MINUS and $100,000 for ROBINSON. They were scheduled for arraignment at Charlestown District Court on the following offenses:
