Police: 2 DCR workers allegedly sell drugs
BOSTON -- Two on-duty Department of Conservation and Recreation workers allegedly sold marijuana to undercover police officers at Revere Beach on Saturday evening.
According to the State Police, the temporary summertime employees, 17 and 21, had a second job selling drugs.
The two allegedly sold a small amount of the marijuana to two undercover troopers.
“There’s a lot of undercover cops on Revere Beach. They’re looking for all kinds of activity. They walk up and down here all day long, so they keep a pretty good eye on the beach, and that’s why we don’t have that much crime down here, it’s great” said Mark Guiliano, a beachgoer.
Beach employees allegedly selling marijuana, doesn’t sit well with parents who are hoping their children are not exposed to drugs.
“I wouldn’t want to bring my kids here if I knew this was like a drug spot,” said Lulu Fuentes, who goes to the Revere Beach often.
Others brush off the drug dealing as just another crime that could happen anywhere.
“Nothing surprises me anymore, I think you find that drugs don’t discriminate in any type of job,” said Guiliano.
No comment has been made by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
