Pittsfield Man Arrested on Outstanding Warrants, Firearms Charges

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State policed arrested a man on Tyler Street in Pittsfield on Sunday evening after it was determined that he had outstanding warrants and was unlawfully in possession of a firearm.
 
Michael McCoy, 31, of Pittsfield, was placed under arrest on three outstanding arrest warrants, which were for failure to appear in Central Berkshire District Court and original charges involving motor vehicle offenses.
 
Trooper Robert Berrena of the Troop B Community Action Team was on patrol on Tyler Street at about 7:45 p.m. when he observed a vehicle that he believed was being operated by a man whom he knew to have outstanding warrants.  
 
After confirming the existence of three warrants and that the vehicle, a 1995 Lexus ES300, had a revoked registration status, he pulled the vehicle over. It was being operated by McCoy.
 
While conducting an inventory of the motor vehicle, a Smith and Wesson 9mm handgun was located by Sgt. Doug Heppleston, who was assisting with the stop.
 
In addition to the three outstanding warrants, McCoy was booked at the state police barracks in Cheshire on the following charges:
 
1. Unlawful possession of a firearm
2. Unlawful possession of ammunition
3. Unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle
4. Uninsured motor vehicle
5. Revoked registration
 
McCoy was transported to the Berkshire County House of Correction to be held pending his appearance in District Court on Monday.
