The District E-5 and E-18 Drug Control Units were conducting surveillance in the Washington Street area. The following info is provided by the BPD and where charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
Undercover Drug Control Unit officers arrested two individuals on Saturday around 1:34 p.m. after seeing a quick drug deal on Washington Street.
District E-5 and E-18 Drug Control Units officers arrested Chourouk Sheila Mansora, of 165 Sherrin St., Hyde Park, and John V. Richmond, of 6 Brook St., Roslindale, with possession of a class B drug (Percocet), with the intent to manufacture, distribute and dispense.
While on surveillance of the 4600 Washington Street area, which is known for drug activity, police noticed a lone female sitting in the driver seat of a vehicle with the driver's side door opened, with one foot out the door of the vehicle while staring intently towards a parking lot. About five minutes later the woman was seen stepping from her vehicle and staring intently at an approaching vehicle, according to a Boston Police report.
Officers saw a grey Mercedes drive towards the woman, who got into the vehicle with a closed right fist. About a minute later, the woman exited the vehicle, got back into her car and began to leave.
Officers approached the parties, and identified themselves as BPD with badges. Police asked Richmond, the driver of the Mercedes what he was doing at the parking lot, a Roslindale CVS parking lot. He allegedly said, "My girlfriend was meeting with her friend."
The first woman voluntarily gave one plastic bag of four Percocet pills to police, and she alleged to police she had paid $150 to Mansora, which had been placed on the back seat of the car.
Police asked Mansora what she was doing in the parking lot, to which she allegedly said, "My friend owed me money." An officer asked her where the money was, and she retorted, "It's in the glove box with my other money." Officers recovered a total of $450 from the glove box, and arrested Mansora. Officers also seized $32 from a money clip in the driver's door compartment.
The woman was advised she would receive a summons for possession of a class B drug.
