Man with loaded gun and plenty of spare bullets stopped on Comm. Ave. in Allston to sell some drugs, police say

Boston Police report drug officers who had staked out the inbound side of Commonwealth Avenue just past Harvard because of reports of drugs sales there arrested a man who came all the way in from Fitchburg to sell some drugs to a guy standing there Thursday evening.

Police say the officers noticed a car pull up to a guy standing on the street and stop, shortly before 7 p.m. A guy got out of the passenger side, the two had a conversation and seemed to exchange items - a possible sign of a drug transaction.

Officers conducted an inquiry of the vehicle’s registration which revealed that it was revoked.

DCU officers requested the assistance for a marked cruiser to conduct a traffic stop. Officers were able to stop the motor vehicle in the area of 300 Summit Avenue. Officers approached the motor vehicle, and advised the occupants of the reason for the stop. Officers requested the occupants to exit the vehicle as it needed to be towed.

After further investigation, officers recovered from inside the vehicle a firearm, one magazine loaded with eight rounds, a second empty magazine, and a box of 42 rounds of 9mm ammunition. The firearm was later determined to be a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield.

Jose Reyes Jr., 38, of Fitchburg, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and distribution of a Class E drug, police say. At his arraignment in Brighton Municipal Court on Friday, Judge David Donnelly agreed with prosecutors to have Reyes held without bail until at least a dangerousness hearing scheduled for tomorrow, court records show.

Innocent, etc.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


That the Allstonian couldn't buy from someone who already had the goods in Boston? I don't imagine there was a price break after covering the cost of transporting the goods 50 miles, and the story indicates that the volume of the purchase was quite small.

Also, remember the episode of Breaking Bad where Gus got pinched for driving an unregistered car? Me neither.

Hardly worth the effort IMHO.

Prescription level opium is pretty powerful and lets not even talk about codeine's effects. If you're not actually in pain that stuff can get you mighty loopy.

Your takeaway from "Notice how the successful gangster registers his (expletive) car?"

Officers observed a motor vehicle stop in front of the individual, and the front passenger exited. The two individuals engaged in conversation, and were observed handing unknown items to one another. Officers believed that a street level drug transaction had occurred.

So, umm...what about the drugs that are now apparently in Boston? Watching a suspicions hand-off that cops think is a drug transaction isn't enough PC to frisk & question the buyer?
