On Wednesday, May 10th, 2107, the Quincy Police Drug Control Unit (DCU) was conducting surveillance in the West Quincy section of the city.

Detectives requested Officer Foley (and his K9 partner Charlie) to assist in stopping the minivan. K9 Charlie is a trained and certified drug detection police dog. Officer Foley approached the vehicle and spoke with Mr. Irizarry-Onnexy. K9 Charlie then conducted a sniff of the operator and the vehicle. K9 Charlie showed a positive alert in the rear cargo area, as well as the groin area of Mr. Irizarry-Onnexy . Mr. Irizarry-Onnexy admitted to detectives that he had narcotics hidden in his underwear. Detectives located multiple bags of what they believed to be Cocaine and Heroin. Detectives also recovered multiple bags of what is believed to be cocaine and heroin in the vehicle where K9 Charlie had indicated to a positive alert.
