Boston Police Department (BPD) officers responded on April 3 to a report of a disturbance in Egleston Square that led to the arrest of two people on gun and drug charges, according to bpdnews.com
Officers responded to 3148 Washington St. at around 10:20 a.m. on April 3 to a report of a disturbance. They placed Shedrick Harris, 53, under arrest for possession of class B drugs. The officers saw a large amount of drug paraphernalia while inside the suspect’s apartment and froze it, waiting for a search warrant.
Around 12:50 p.m., officers stopped a 16-year-old juvenile male from attempting to enter the apartment through a back door. Officers frisked the juvenile and found a gun with a red laser sight. They later discovered four bags of crack cocaine on the juvenile and $114. The juvenile was later arraigned on drug and gun charges.
Detectives eventually executed a search warrant at the apartment around 8:30 p.m. and found a loaded gun, a small bag of marijuana, a small bag of heroin and 17 prescription pills.
According to Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Renee Nadeau Algarin, Harris was arraigned in Jamaica Plain’s West Roxbury Municipal Court on April 5 on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of heroin, possession of a Class E substance, and possession of a class D substance. A judge imposed $2,000 bail. Harris is being represented by attorney Paul Marino. Attempts by the Gazette to contact his attorney for comment were unsuccessful.
