A third suspect has been charged in connection with the theft last month of an assault rifle from the trunk of an unmarked Police car in New Bedford. Two others have already been charged.  25 year old Rickey Dexter of New Bedford was actually arrested two weeks ago, but the arrest was not formally announced by the Police Department.  He’s charged with receiving stolen property and unlawful possession of a firearm, but according to Det. Capt. Steve Vicente, he did not take the weapon from the trunk of the car.
