The following information is provided by the Boston Police Department and where charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
Undercover Boston Police Drug Control Units recognized a Quincy man from a recent drug arrest in Roslindale, leading to his arrest for heroin possession.
On Nov. 24, Colin P. White, of 12 Essex St. #4, Quincy, and Davill A. Diaz, of 4773 Washington St., West Roxbury, were both arrested and charged with possession of a class A drug, heroin.
While on surveillance at 4600 Washington St., in Roslindale, the CVS parking lot, a known area for drug transactions, police saw the suspect, White, circling the lot in his vehicle. Recognizing the suspect police followed the suspect's vehicle after confirming the vehicle was registed to him, according to a Boston Police report.
After a stop at a convenient store, and some driving around, police could see the suspect continually talking on his phone. The vehicle stopped at the end of Cowing Street in West Roxbury, a known place for drug transactions, but also took off again, and then returned to the same spot. Then the second suspect, Diaz, who was walking and talking on his cellphone came from Washington Street and got into the vehicle, according to a Boston Police report.
Police then followed the vehicle down different ways, and police could see the suspects looking back continually at the unmarked cruiser. At this time police thought it would be good to stop the vehicle for the numerous driving infractions they had witnessed the driver do since following him, according to a Boston Police report. Activating their lights and sirens on Grove Street, the driver, White, continued for 200 more yards while both occupants continued to look back at the screaming police car. The vehicle finally stopped at 339 Grove St., in West Roxbury.
Police observed a plastic bag on the driver floor consistent with that of a heroin packaging, and a rolled paper on the center console similar to a fashioned straw for snorting drugs. Officers noted a loose tan powder substance on the vehicle's floor carpet located between the driver seat and console. Officers recognized the substance as heroin and collected and put in a plastic bag as evidence, according to a Boston Police report.
Officers also seized a total of $250 from the suspects. Police found a broken, but active Samsung phone wedged between the passenger seat and the center console, but both occupants denied ownership of the phone.
