Multiple law enforcement agencies executed a no-knock search warrant at a Fall River apartment Tuesday morning, resulting in two arrests and the confiscation of large-capacity firearms.

Detectives with the Fall River Police Department Vice and Intelligence Unit, the Gang Unit, Emergency Services Unit, and the Southeastern Massachusetts Gang Task Force obtained and executed a no-knock search warrant at 422-426 County Street, apartment 1SF, according to a release from the Fall River Police Department.

The no-knock warrant was requested due to the presence of firearms and potential gang members, police said in a press statement.

At approximately 6:30 a.m. on March 3, the Emergency Services Unit made entry into the apartment and secured four males in four separate bedrooms before the search commenced, the statement said.

Located in a duffle bag in the room occupied by Caine Hamilton, 21, detectives found a black Taurus Armas G2C 9MM pistol loaded with 11 rounds of ammunition in addition to a single round in the chamber.

Under a mattress in the room occupied by Jurvonta Decuire, 19, detectives found a black Ruger SR40C 40 caliber pistol loaded with 14 rounds of ammunition in addition to a single round in the chamber.

Police said neither Decuire nor Hamilton is licensed to carry in Massachusetts. Both men were arrested on charges of possession of a large-capacity firearm and possession of ammunition without an FID card.
