At about 12:14 AM on Saturday December 12, 2020, officers assigned to the District C-11 (Dorchester) Drug Control Unit executed a search warrant as part of an ongoing drug investigation in the area of 363 Quincy Street in Dorchester. On arrival, officers arrested the target of their investigation, Emanuel Pires, 32, of Dorchester, as he exited the residence. Officers then made entry to the address where they were confronted by a resident who was verbally abusive towards them. This resident continued to yell and spit in close proximity to the officers while stating that she was ill with an infectious disease.
Officers continued their investigation which led to the recovery of approximately 16 lbs. of marijuana, a loaded 9mm Glock 26 handgun equipped with a drum style magazine with an estimated 50 round capacity, as well as a large amount of U.S. Currency and assorted drug paraphernalia.
While on scene, officers also arrested Javar Barrows, 26, of Roxbury and Elber Silva, 26, of Dorchester, without incident in connection to this investigation.
All parties will appear in Dorchester District Court on charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute Class D Drugs and Conspiracy to Violate the Drug Laws. Additionally, Emanuel Pires will be charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.
