Two arrested for Trafficking Fentanyl Over 36 grams
During the month of June, the Quincy Police Drug Control Unit, in cooperation with the South Shore Drug Task Force, began an investigation into the distribution of narcotics in the Germantown section of Quincy, as well as other communities on the South Shore. On Friday, June 29th, members of the DCU observed what they believed to be a drug transaction between a male party and the operator of a Honda Pilot, now identified as Jefferson Guerrero.
Detectives interviewed the male who turned over heroin that he admitted to purchasing from Mr. Guerrero.
Detectives then stopped the Honda Pilot and placed Mr. Guerrero, and his passenger, Joshua Martinez, under arrest. The vehicle was towed to the Quincy Police station, where Officer Foley utilized his canine partner, Charlie, to perform a "sniff" of the Honda Pilot. Charlie showed a positive alert to the presence of a narcotic odor in the area of the front passenger seat and the center console. After a further search of the vehicle, officers located a mechanical "hide" under the front passenger seat. This mechanical hide contained approx. 46 grams of a substance believed to be heroin/fentanyl and approx. 7 grams of a white powder believed to be cocaine. The mechanical hide was removed from the vehicle.
