Commonwealth v. Crowley-Chester (Lawyers Weekly No. 10-041-17)

NOTICE:  All slip opinions and orders are subject to formal revision and are superseded by the advance sheets and bound volumes of the Official Reports.  If you find a typographical error or other formal error, please notify the Reporter of Decisions, Supreme Judicial Court, John Adams Courthouse, 1 Pemberton Square, Suite 2500, Boston, MA, 02108-1750; (617) 557-1030; SJCReporter@sjc.state.ma.us

SJC-12128

COMMONWEALTH  vs.  ATREYO CROWLEY-CHESTER.

March 9, 2017.

Constitutional Law, Search and seizure.  Search and Seizure, Motor vehicle, Impoundment of vehicle.

The defendant, Atreyo Crowley-Chester, was charged in a complaint with carrying a firearm without a license, in violation of G. L. c. 269, § 10 (a), and possession of a firearm or ammunition without a firearm identification card, in violation of G. L. c. 269, § 10 (h).  The charges stem from the recovery of a loaded firearm from a motor vehicle after police officers impounded and conducted an inventory search of the vehicle.  The defendant filed a motion to suppress, which a judge in the District Court allowed after an evidentiary hearing.  A single justice of this court granted the Commonwealth leave to pursue an interlocutory appeal, and the Appeals Court reversed.  See Commonwealth v. CrowleyChester, 86 Mass. App. Ct. 804 (2015).  The case is now before this court on further appellate review.[1]  Because we conclude that the motion judge properly allowed the motion to suppress, we affirm.
