A South Boston man was arrested at Andrew station around 4 p.m. yesterday after a Route 10 bus arrived and a passenger told police a guy in the back was "sniffing and eating" drugs out of an Altoids tin, Transit Police report.
Officers boarded the bus and observed a male, later identified as Robert Hynes, 22, of South Boston seated in the rearmost seat who matched the description. Officers also observed an Altoids breath mint tin can on Hynes' lap. Inside the tin can officers located a small clear baggie containing a brown powdery substance believed to be heroin, a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana and 2 pills believed to be a controlled class B narcotic.
Hynes is scheduled for arraignment on drug-possession charges in South Boston District Court today.
