Boston man, traveling with child, faces charges after bringing loaded gun through airport security

On Thursday afternoon, District Attorney Kevin Hayden announced that a Hyde Park man had been arrested the previous day for trying to bring a loaded gun through a security checkpoint at Logan Airport.

Lorenzo Beechman, 36, was trying to sneak a loaded gun through airport security on Wednesday with his young son. He hid the gun in a shoebox and hid the box inside a brown paper bag.

A screening machine belt revealed a.22-cal Hi-Standard Model B pistol, which police later determined to be loaded, and State Police were called to a Delta security checkpoint in Terminal A shortly after 7 p.m. Several of Beechman’s own personal items were also tucked away in the shoebox. The parcel was safely stored by the screening staff.

Beechman had already taken the kid and his belongings to the gate when troopers approached him; at first, Beechman admitted that the package was his. When pressed for details, he quickly backtracked, saying, “No, that’s not my bag. Initially, I mistook the subject matter for a discussion of a different bag.

Beechman was spotted affixing the bag to the metal detector by surveillance cameras. The kid was taken from him and given to a relative’s care after his arrest.

Beechman, the police say, has a history of firearms and armed and masked robbery convictions. At present, he is wanted for several crimes, including breaking and entering and larceny from a building, as well as resisting arrest, assault, and battery on a police officer.

Attempting to sneak a gun, especially a loaded one, past airport security is incredibly arrogant. That he exposed a child to the aftermath of his reckless and potentially deadly action is tragic,” Hayden said.

On Thursday, Beechman was charged with illegally carrying a firearm without a licence (third offence), violating airport security regulations, illegally possessing a firearm without a licence after committing a violent crime, and illegally possessing ammunition in an East Boston court.

Beechman, according to the police, has a history of firearms convictions as well as armed and masked robbery. Cases against him include burglary, trespassing, and theft from a building, as well as resisting arrest, assault, and assault on a police officer.

To think that a loaded gun can be smuggled through airport security unnoticed is incredibly brazen. Hayden commented, “It’s tragic that this man exposed a child to the consequences of his reckless behaviour.”

On Thursday, an East Boston court charged Beechman with illegally possessing a firearm and ammunition, as well as carrying a loaded firearm without a licence (third misdemeanour), violating airport security, and engaging in a pattern of violent behaviour.

In the past, Beechman has been convicted of crimes involving firearms, including armed and masked robbery, according to authorities. The prosecutor stated that additional charges of breaking and entering and larceny from a building as well as resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer were pending against him.

District Attorney Kevin Hayden remarked, “It’s incredibly brazen to think that you can move a gun — in this case, a loaded gun — through an airport security machine without it being detected. The fact that a child had to witness the aftermath of his reckless behaviour saddens me.

This is not the first time someone has tried to bring a firearm onto a plane at Boston’s Logan Airport. According to the TSA, this year saw a record number of firearms being confiscated from passengers at airport security checkpoints. The 31 firearms confiscated are an increase of 11.5% over the previous record set in 2018.
