Boston Police officers arrested two Boston residents after conducting an undercover drug investigation on Wednesday at around 6 p.m. in the area of Tremont Street and West Springfield Street in the South End.
Officers asked a man if he knew where they could score any “brown”. The suspect said he knew a guy. The suspect made a phone call and told the officer that his guy was coming on a bike and would meet them at the corner of West Springfield Street. The officer gave the suspect $40 and was told to wait.
The suspect on the bike turned on to West Springfield Street from Shawmut Avenue and met with the suspect with the money. A quick hand-to-hand transaction took place and the suspect headed back towards the officer with a small bag in his mouth. The suspect then gave the officer a bag of brown/tan powder believed to be heroin. The officer walked away down West Springfield towards Shawmut Avenue. He then signaled for observing officers to move in.
Officers stopped and arrested Nelson Gonzales of 14 San Juan St. Gonzales will be charged in Boston Municipal Court with possession of a Class A substance with intent to distribute and distribution of a Class A substance within 300 feet of a school zone.
