One of the responsibilities of the police is to keep drugs off the streets in order to provide a safe environment for everyone. When those individuals who are selling drugs are out in the open, it may be far easier for Massachusetts authorities to catch someone on drug charges. If a person is selling inside his or her place of business, however, he or she may be much harder to catch in the act.
After an eight-month investigation of two shop owners, the search came to a head. A search warrant was served to a man who owns a market in Dorchester where police allegedly found a gambit of different illegal items, including drugs, cutting agents, a large amount of cash and firearms. All of these items were apparently confiscated by authorities.
