Three Massachusetts residents face drug and other charges after police arrested them Wednesday to conclude an investigation into crack cocaine trafficking between the Bay State and the city.
Catherine Steele, 22, of 560 Lake St., Shrewsbury, was charged with driving after suspension and driver’s license prohibitions, both misdemeanors, and was held on $100 cash bail pending arraignment, police said.
Lawrence Calafell, 43, of 27 Chestnut St., Winchendon, was charged with criminal liability to the sale of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, second offense, which are both felony charges, police said. Calafell, who was being held on $25,000 cash or surety bail, faces enhanced penalities because officers said they found more than five grams of crack cocaine on him after his arrest.
Kevon Simpson, 19, of Webster, Mass., was charged with sale of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug, both felony charges, according to police. Officers said Simpson initially gave them a fake name, and that when they correctly identified him they found he had outstanding warrants from Webster on charges of larceny, armed robbery and kidnapping.
Simpson was being held on $250,000 cash only bail while extradition is sought, police said. – See more at: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20160917/NEWS03/160919512&source=RSS#sthash.5xxD9yxt.dpufCategories:
