Undercover Boston Police arrested a Norwood man for allegedly distributing prescription medication in the Home Depot parking lot in West Roxbury.
One Nov. 7 around 4:57 p.m., Alain Barbara, of 565 Pleasant St., Norwood, was arrested and charged with distribution of a class C drug, Adderall.
Members of the Boston Police District E-5/E-18 Drug Control Unit in the Home Depot parking lot, a known place for drug transactions, according to a Boston Police report. Police saw one vehicle parked in the farthest spot from the store when there were plenty of other spots closer to the store. After several minutes another vehicle came, and one driver got into the other's vehicle.
Believing they were seeing a drug deal, police approached the vehicle and displayed their badges.
The two suspects provided inconsistent stories, according to police. Officers asked the suspects if they had any drugs on them or in their vehicles. One suspect allegedly said he had some Adderall in his center console of his vehicle, and that he had purchased 20 pills for $80 from Barbara. Officers found 16 orange and white capsules wrapped in a napkin.
The purchaser will be summonsed to the West Roxbury District Court for possession of a class C drug.
