Wakefield Police arrested a man suspected of dealing drugs in Wakefield—for the second time in a month. Police arrested John Moses, 23, of 24 Haverhill St. in Reading on Feb. 29 at 6 p.m. for allegedly being in possession of cocaine and heroin with the intent to distribute it.
Wakefield detectives, who had Moses under surveillance, said they followed Moses in his green Pontiac Firebird into Lynn on Feb. 29, where they believed a drug transaction had taken place. Once he had crossed back into Wakefield, police enacted a traffic stop on Salem Street. Inside Moses' car, police allegedly found three small bags of drugs: Two bags of heroin and one bag of cocaine. Police said they believed that Moses had intended to distribute the drugs. The K-9 unit was called in, but did not discover any further drugs in the car.
This is the second time Moses has been arrested for suspected drug dealing in Wakefield. He was also arrested on Feb. 9 for allegedly dealing Percocet in Wakefield. Moses will be charged with possession to distribute a Class A substance, possession to distribute a Class B substance, and was also charged with an additional warrant out for his arrest.
