Boston Police report officers responding to a 911 call about a loud argument at 453 Old Colony Ave. Wednesday evening found a man and a woman - and lots of pot, stuff to package it and cash.
Upon arrival officers heard a commotion inside an apartment. The officers knocked and announced their presence and heard more shuffling, but no one replied. A few moments later, the door was opened by two occupants, and officers performed a protective sweep of the residence for possible victims and suspects. While doing so, officers observed varying amounts of marijuana, packaging, paraphernalia consistent with the illegal sale of drugs, and large amounts of cash in plain view.
Police charged Jessica Lizine, 28, of South Boston, and Quran Sinkler, formerly of South Boston and currently of Greensboro, NC, with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Police "froze" the apartment until they returned shortly before midnight with a warrant, at which point they say they found a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber gun with an obliterated serial number, 164 rounds of ammunition, about 21 small plastic bags filled with marijuana, scales and other sales paraphernalia and more than $1,000 in currency.
Police then added charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number to the charges against the couple.
