Car Troubles Lead to Cocaine Bust

The following information was supplied by the Brookline Police Department. Charges listed do not imply conviction.

Officers were traveling on Chestnut Hill Avenue at the intersection of Boylston Street on December 22 at around 6:30 p.m. when they observed a grey Mitsubishi SUV driving with their hazards on. The vehicle was traveling very slowly. Officers pulled over to assist the driver.

As the officers approached the driver and passenger windows, they reportedly noticed two beer bottles behind the two seats. While speaking with the passenger, officers noted that he seemed very nervous and agitated. Before the officer asked the passenger anything, the passenger said that they just went out to get food and were on their way home. The officer noted that his eyes were bloodshot, that he was swaying in his seat and that a clear odor of marijuana was emanating from the car.

While the driver contacted AAA, the officers ran a check on the passenger for any outstanding warrants. Officers discovered that there was two warrants out, and arrested Earnell Kelly, 29.

Officers asked the driver if he had any warrants out, which he did not. They then asked if there was anything in the car that shouldn’t be. To this, the driver reportedly said, “No officer, you can search the car if you want.” Officers asked the driver to step out of the vehicle. Officers frisked the driver and found a wad of cash along with a bag of what appeared to be marijuana. Inside the car, officers found what appeared to be a blunt. In the glove compartment, officers found a balled up bunch of paper towels behind the main glove compartment. Officers found 25 individually wrapped plastic bags of hard, white powder.

Officers arrested Walter Guevara, 35, of 7 Greenville Street, Roxbury MA. While the officers read Guevara his Miranda Rights, Guevara leaned over and vomited.

Officers searched the center console and found more balled up paper towels. Under these were more bags of white powder. A Boston K-9 unit was called in, but the search yielded nothing.

Officers found 33 small bags of cocaine as well as two bags of marijuana and $1,412. Officers estimated that the cocaine was in excess of 14 grams.

Earnell was charged with two failures two appear warrants, trafficking cocaine, possession of a Class B substance in a school or park zone and was issued a Town Citation for possession of less than an ounce of Marijuana.

Guevara was charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of a Class B substance in a school or park zone and was issued a Town Citation for possession of less than an ounce of Marijuana.

If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you can stop helping to enforce it. You are entitled—required even—to act according to your conscience. * It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict. * You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury. * You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors on your position when voting. Simply state that you find the accused not guilty! * Jurors must understand that it is their opinion, their vote. If the Judge and the other jurors disapprove, too bad. There is no punishment for having a dissenting opinion. We must create what we can no longer afford to wait for and end the most destructive, dysfunctional, dishonest and racist social policy since Slavery. PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!

two idiots in a car selling dope as a career. What else is new. Throw them in jail and let them out in a few years so they can come back to Brookline to break into people's houses. Clearly Malcolm, you are a non-taxpayer.

Thomas Mac, Most of us know that individuals who use illegal drugs are going to get high—no matter what, so why do you not prefer they acquire them in stores that check IDs and pay taxes? Gifting the market in narcotics to ruthless criminals, foreign terrorists, and corrupt law enforcement officials is seriously compromising our future. Why do you wish to continue with a policy that has proven itself to be a poison in the veins of our once so "proud & free" nation? Even if you cannot bear the thought of people using drugs, there is absolutely nothing you, or any government, can do to stop them. We have spent 40 years and trillions of dollars on this dangerous farce; Prohibition will not suddenly and miraculously start showing different results. Do you actually believe you may personally have something to lose If we were to begin basing our drug policy on science & logic instead of ignorance, hate and lies? Maybe you're a police officer, a prison guard, or a local/national politician. Possibly you're scared of losing employment, overtime pay, the many kickbacks, and those regular fat bribes. But what good will any of that do you once our society has followed Mexico over the dystopian abyss of dismembered bodies, vats of acid, and marauding thugs carrying gold-plated AK-47s with leopard-skinned gunstocks? Kindly allow us to forgo the next level of your sycophantic prohibition-engendered mayhem! Prohibition prevents regulation: legalize, regulate, and tax!

it's the so called honest people that are getting there kick back that will lose out if it is made legal. How would they look after all the bull to open up a drug store themselves because it makes so much money? better to get your hands greased then look like a hipocrite
