Bertucci's Employee Charged with Marijuana Dealing in Hancock Village

The following information is provided by the Boston Police Department, and where charges are mentioned it does not indicate a conviction.


Another person was arrested for allegedly trying to sell marijuana out of the Hancock Village parking lot on the VFW Parkway. 

This is at least the third arrest in three weeks that undercover Boston Police arrested someone for selling marijuana in the Chestnut Hill shopping area. There was the suspect who met with a Gary's Liquors employee; and the Scituate man charged with trying to sell some marijuana out of his car.

On Sat. Nov. 17 around 3:03 p.m., Konstantinos Petridis, of 303 Vermont St., West Roxbury, was arrested and charged with distribution of a class D drug, and intent to distibute a class D drug, marijuana.

Undercover Boston Police Drug Control Unit members were conducting surveillance in the area when they saw a vehicle park in front of Bertucci's. Of the two occupants in the car, one was seen texting, according to a Boston Police report. After about five minutes the suspect came out of Bertucci's wearing a black apron, and entered the vehicle being watched. Police recognized the suspect from a previous drug arrest.

Police allegedly saw the suspect manipulating something in the car, and approached the vehicle with badges displayed, as they believed they were seeing a drug deal. An officer saw the suspect with a plastic container on his lap with marijuana in it.

All three individuals complied with exiting the vehicle. Police seized the container containing marijuana, and a small plastic film container with a single bud of marijuana, according to a Boston Police report. Police also seized $60 from the center console of the vehicle.

The suspect allegedly admitted he had more marijuana in his backpack at Bertucci's, which police also seized.

The two other individuals were released and advised they would receive a citation for possession of marijuana.

Hugh Go peddle your pathetic tome somewhere else. You were convicted of smuggling and trafficking, not having an ounce in your glove box. The movie "Blow"? George Jung got his start smuggling weed, and soon it became cocaine by the tons. You were able to obtain a college degree in prison, thanks to us taxpayers. You're welcome. Every single drug addled miscreant that I know started his road to ruin with Marijuana. Every single one. No one got hurt right? You're a sham. Stop whining. You knew the risks, you gambled, and you lost. You are dismissed.

marty... I am not whining...I am promoting a book...huge difference. Our nation was founded upon freedom of the individual. Each of our citizens was guaranteed the right to the pursuit of happiness...so long as he brings no harm to his fellow citizens or their property. When did this change? I wish you the best.
