The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate convictions.

Boston Police Officers charged a man with possession of crack cocaine on Aguadilla Street on Monday night. 

Officers were on patrol of the Villa Victoria Housing Development at 4:57 p.m. on March 18 when they recognized two individuals on Aguadilla Street, but not the third man who was with them. 

The officers pulled their unmarked cruiser over and identified themselves to try and identify the unknown male. According to the police, the man attempted to conceal what appeared to be an open container of alcohol. When officers exited the vehicle, they saw that the man was carrying a bottle of rum, according to the police report. 

When the officer asked if he was carrying any weapons, the man stated, “I got a razor blade in my pocket,” motioning to his left pants pocket. The officer frisked the man and found a folding knife and two plastic bags containing rock substances police believed to be crack cocaine. Officers also found a bag of what appeared to be less than one ounce of marijuana, they said. 

Officers charged Marcel Barrows, of 128 Eustis Street, Boston, with possession of a Class B substance, Drinking in Public, and an outstanding default warrant for possession of a Class D Substance out of Boston Municipal Court.
