Boston Police arrested two suspects at the Home Depot parking lot on possession of numerous prescription pills, and stolen property possibly linked to recent Dedham burglaries.
On March 1 around 4:31 p.m., Timothy James Brennan, of 21 Walnut Road, West Roxbury, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property of more than $250 and possession of class C drugs; and Michelle M. Mallon, of 69 Ralph Mann Drive, Stoughton, was arrested and charged with possession of class B drugs and receiving stolen property of more than $250.
Members of the E-5 Drug Control Unit were conducting surveillance at the Home Depot parking lot, a known area for drug transactions. Police noted a female suspect in a vehicle parked in a desolate area of the lot, drove by her and allegedly saw her bent over the seat, according to a Boston Police report. Officers noted the suspect was rubbing her nose. Police approached the vehicle and identified themselves.
Police saw numerous pill bottles and a cut straw on the passenger floor, according to a Boston Police report. The suspect alleged she was brought to the location with the other suspect, Brennan, but he had taken off with another woman. Police had seen the other suspect, and the other woman, walking on the VFW Parkway. The female suspect allegedly told cops the male suspect had cocaine on him. Police found numerous hypodermic needles and syringes under the passenger side seat.
There was a variety of prescription bottles made out to the female suspect and to another person, with some pills present not being prescribed.
A further search of the vehicle turned up: a number of laptop computers; electronics; one large bag of jewelry with more than 30 pieces of earrings, necklaces, watches, and broaches; and other items with that of stolen wares and goods taken from residential burglaries.
Police located the male suspect and the other female, who said she had met the male suspect at Dick's Sporting Goods in Dedham earlier in the day.
Police also seized three plastic bags of a white substance believed to be cocaine weighing more than three grams from the female suspect's purse, according to a Boston Police report.
Based on the large amount of property recovered, and the parties ties to Dedham, and recent residential burglaries in Dedham, Boston Police contacted Dedham detectives to let them know of the arrest and seized goods.
