A woman from Belmont and a man from Quincy face drug possession charges after a Jefferson Street resident told police he found them acting strangely in front of his house.
The resident reported to police on Saturday morning, Sept. 22, that the couple appeared to be hallucinating and the man, a 21-year-old, was later brought to South Shore Hospital, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.
Pauline D. McNeil, 20 of Belmont, was arrested and charged. The man's name was not released because he had yet to be charged and will be summonsed to court.
When officers searched the couple, they found sugar cubes in tin foil in the Quincy man's pants pocket.
"Both individuals made statements regarding prior drug use and a search of McNeil’s backpack uncovered several sugar cubes wrapped in tin foil similar to her companion’s and a spoon with residue that later tested positive for ecstasy," Jenkins said. "On her person, McNeil was found to possess 2 ¼ Suboxone pills, a small baggie of marijuana, a prescription bottle in the name of another woman containing fifteen Trazodone pills and additional unknown pills."
The man also had a small vile containing what turned out to be PCP, Jenkins said. He will be summonsed on a charge of possession of a class B drug with intent to distribute.
McNeil was charged with possession of PCP with intent to distribute, possession of Suboxone, Possession of MDMA/Ecstasy and possession of Trazodone, Jenkins said. Additional charges could come depending on what the unknown pills and sugar cubes are.
