Boston Police report an investigation into how a man turned up at Tufts Medical Center with stab wounds early this morning led them to a condo at the Residences at W Boston, 110 Stuart St., where they found fresh blood and what turned out to be 30 pounds of marijuana and various tools associated with its sale
Police say officers were called to the Tufts ER around 3:30 a.m. and then went over to the Residences a couple blocks away, where they found a 512-square-foot condo on the 23rd floor with "blood spatters" as well as owner Daniel Asher, 32, who was arrested for assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.
Officers froze the residence and returned with a warrant allowing officers to search for the weapon used in the crime. As officers processed the scene, they observed in plain view a large quantity of marijuana, paraphernalia consistent with the sale of marijuana, and US currency. Further investigation led officers to recover over 30 pounds of marijuana and approximately $22,000 in US paper currency.
Asher then had a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute added. He is scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday in Boston Municipal Court.
