A call about a man with a knife led to the arrest of a Harrison Avenue man.
Kory Dion of 444 Harrison Avenue was arrested by police on two warrants and subsequently charged with illegal possession of Class C and E controlled substances.
Boston Police officers responded to a radio call about a person with a knife on Washington Street at 9:22 a.m. on October 22. Officers then spotted Dion as he boarded an MBTA bus on Washington Street. Officers said they believed Dion was under the influence of drugs because he was swaying, slurring his speech and couldn't keep his eyes open.
According to police, Dion said someone had just tried to rob him, and that everyone had razors. Police searched Dion and found a pack of standard double edge shaving razors. Dion said he uses the razors to open boxes at his job.
Officers then ran Dion's information and learned he had two default warrants out of Dorchester Court.
Dion was first arrested for those warrants. During his booking, officers said Dion wouldn't open his clenched right hand. After multiple demands that he open his hand, officers forced his hand open and found 10 pills of Alprazolam and eight pills of Clonazepam. He did not have a prescription for these pills. At that point, Dion was charged with drug possession.
