The following reports were provided by the Wellesley Police Department. Charges where mentioned do not indicate a conviction.
An undercover detective, working with Wellesley Police and the Norfolk County Police Anti-Crime task force (NorPAC), purchased heroin from 21-year-old Melvin Hernandez on Cedar Street, Dec 13, about 5:30 p.m. Shortly afterward, Wellesley Police Detective Connolly pulled the vehicle over and arrested and charged the three occupants.
Because the undercover detective has purchased from Hernandez before, so he was charged on two counts of distributing narcotics, three of distributing in a school zone, two counts of being present where narcotics were kept, and two counts of conspiracy to violate drug laws.
The other two people in his vehicle were also arrested and charged. Emily Arias-Perez, 17, of Boston was charged with distributing narcotics, distributing in a school zone, being present where narcotics were kept and conspiracy to violate drug law.
Ramon Soto-Feliz, 36, of Dorchester was arrested and charged with distributing narcotics, and two counts each of distributing in a school zone, being present where narcotics were kept and conspiracy to violate drug law.
Hernandez and Soto-Feliz were held on $10,000 bail. Arias-Perez was released on personal recognizance.
Operating under the influence
Officers Dixon and Derby were dispatched to Colburn and Garden Streets, just after midnight on Dec. 15, where a caller reported that a woman was stopped at a stop sign and passed out in her car. When they arrived, she was standing next to her driver's side door.
Police spoke to the reporting caller, who said they had pulled up behind the vehicle and waited for it to pull out of the stop sign. After some time where the car had not moved, the witness got out to check on the driver, who was reportedly passed out in the vehicle.
When police spoke to the driver, Elizabeth Hahn of Sherborn, 54, they report she was unsteady on her feet, had bloodshot eyes, and spoke with slurred speech. After she failed some field sobriety tests, she was taken into custody, arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Hahn was later released on personal recognizance.
