At the old Progressive Club in East Boston, the lights were on and somebody was home, which made police suspicious

Boston Police report arresting a man on drug charges after finding him and another guy at home inside the Progressive Club, 234 Maverick St. in East Boston, which has been abandoned for awhile now, in fact is slated to be torn down for condos.

Police say that around 10 p.m. on Saturday, officers on patrol "observed a light coming from inside" the abandoned building.

Officers approached the front door, and observed the window had been broken. Officers made entry into the building, and observed two individuals inside.

As officers were placing one male into handcuffs, they recovered a plastic bag containing what they believed to be crack cocaine. It was later determined that the crack cocaine weighed approximately 10.2 grams. Officers also recovered $650 in US currency.

Samuel Junta, 43, was arrested on charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime and possession of a Class B drug with intent to distribute, police say.

Innocent, etc.
