Boston Police arrested a Norwood man and charged him with possession of a percocet pill after a traffic stop in West Roxbury.
On April 12 around 6:50 p.m., Garry J. Dalton, of 23 Hartford St. #1, Norwood, was arrested and charged with possession of a class B drug, a percocet, according to a Boston Police report.
Drug Control Unit officers were conducting surveillance of the 4800 Washington Street block and they saw a vehicle idling on Washington Street. The officers allegedly observed Dalton exit a vehicle, enter a house while empty-handed, and after about a minute he returned to the motor vehicle. Officers saw the suspect holding an unknown item in his left hand and place it in his left front pants pocket, according to a Boston Police report. Dalton then drove away towards Dedham.
With badges displayed, officers approached the suspect's vehicle at a stoplight at Washington and Grove streets. An officer observed the suspect to have a blue powder residue caked hunder his left nostril, according to a Boston Police report. When asked about the residue, the suspect allegedly said, "I sniff my pills." The suspect allegedly said he had gone to the previous location to sell CDs, although officers did not see him with anything before entering the location.
A prescription bottle with a label scratched off containing one 30mg Oxycodone (percocet) pill was seized from the suspect, according to a Boston Police report. A cut pen with blue residue on one end was also seized.
