Pair busted on drug charges near 'Occupy' tent city
BOSTON -- Two ‘Occupy Boston’ protesters were in jail Tuesday morning after being arrested on drug charges.
Charlene Dumont and Isaac Bell were taken into custody near the tent city on Friday night.
Police received tips the pair were selling heroin in the area.
Undercover officers staged a drug deal, and arrested the two at South Station.
"We're going to be aggressive on those people,” Mayor Tom Menino said. “Ninety-nine percent of the people there don’t want to cause trouble."
Protesters are also being blamed for a string of vandalism throughout downtown Boston.
This weekend, 21 buildings were found splashed with phrases like 'End the Fed' and 'Tax the Rich.’
‘Occupy Boston’ denies any involvement in the vandalism.
