Boston Police acquired more evidence against an alleged drug dealer after his mother inadvertently gave it to them.
Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said in a statement that after police arrested Travis Curry, 25, in his Tremont Street apartment building on Feb. 9 for a narcotics transaction with an undercover officer, officers asked Curry’s mother if she’d like to get some warmer clothes for Curry to wear. He was wearing shorts. Curry’s mother agreed and retrieved a sweatshirt and a pair of jeans from inside the apartment, where she handed the clothes to an officer. The officer felt a “hard object” inside the jeans, and upon inspection found a large folding knife, nine bags of crack cocaine and 15 bags of heroin.
Curry was arraigned yesterday in Suffolk Superior Court following his April 20 indictment on charges of distribution of a Class A substance, possession with intent to distribute Class A and Class B substances and violating the state’s drug laws within 1,000 feet of a school. Curry faces enhanced sentences as a second or subsequent drug offender.
Curry is being held on $2,000 cash bail and is ordered to stay away from Madison Park High School property, where Curry allegedly met the undercover officer prior to their encounter at the Tremont Street apartment building. He will return to court on June 20.
