…And the wheels on the criminal justice machine continue. including drug cases. Despite the recent Boston Crime Lab debacle don’t think for a minute that the Commonwealth is slowing down in its criminal investigations into drug dealing. Of course, some cases appear to be more stereotypical than others.
You have no doubt heard about the stereotypical love of Dunkin’ Donuts that law enforcement is supposed to have. I don’t know what level of truth there is in that, but I do know that when I go to DD’s, there is usually a police presence. And I don’t think that they are after me….
One Framingham DD got alittle more police attention than it wanted earlier this week. Law enforcement claims that at said restaurant, the menu included more than coffee, pastry and sandwiches. An employee, 18-year-old Anthony Buskey (hereinafter, the “Defendant”) was allegedly making a little money on the side by selling marijuana out of the shop.
Yesterday, the Defendant pleaded not guilty to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He was released on personal recognizance.
Officers say that they had received a tip about the drug trafficking. They then set up a sting operation targeting the marijuana side-busyness.
Sure enough, they say they saw the Defendant leave the DD and get into a car with two men and conduct what appeared to be a drug deal. The officers moved in and searched the car.
Marijuana was said to be found.
Now they just have to find a working lab in which to test it.
