An armed man was arrested at an Amazon construction zone on the North Shore.

A man police say was armed with a shotgun was arrested at an Amazon facility in Revere, Massachusetts Wednesday.

Revere police were called to Squire Road, an Amazon facility that is under construction, around 11 a.m. for a report of an armed man on site. They arrested the suspect, 41-year-old Matthew White, who they said had the weapon and three rounds of ammunition with him.

"They were directed to this individual and they located him on the property," Revere Police Chief David Callahan said Wednesday. "He had in his possession and in his vehicle a 12-gauge shotgun with some ammunition."

White is involved with the project, police said, though they did not specify how.

"The police learned that Mr. White was affiliated with the Amazon construction project at that site," Callahan said Wednesday.

White was charged with possession of a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without an FID card, leaving a firearm in a motor vehicle and improper storage of a firearm. He is set to be arraigned at Chelsea District Court on Thursday.
