SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Massachusetts state police have arrested a Connecticut man for possessing a large-capacity firearm.
Troopers stopped a vehicle being driven by Hartford resident Dominic Cauley at about 2 a.m. Saturday at a sobriety checkpoint in Springfield.

Police say the 22-year-old Cauley does not have a license to carry a firearm in Massachusetts.
Cauley is charged with possession of a large-capacity firearm, carrying ammunition with a firearm and related crimes.
