In the latest example of real life mimicking our favorite cable dramas, a Massachusetts middle school tutor who is undergoing chemotherapy for stage III cancer was recently arrested on drug trafficking charges after allegedly receiving a package filled with over 400 grams of meth.
Former state representative Stephen W. Doran was held Wednesday on $10,000 bail after he was charged with drug trafficking in allegedly receiving a package containing more than 400 grams of methamphetamine at a Jamaica Plain school where he worked as a tutor, authorities said. [...]
Inside the package, police found two baggies containing 480 grams of a crystalline substance believed to be methamphetamine, a highly addictive stimulant, authorities said.
Authorities said they found another 38 grams of the same substance, about $10,000 in cash, a digital scale, and other drug-distribution paraphernalia inside his home on Dix Street in Dorchester. Prosecutors estimated the total street value of the drugs at $50,000. [Boston Globe]
