Three people were arrested in Quincy on Friday after allegedly attempting to deal heroin.

According to police, officers received information that there would be a drug drop off on Kendrick Avenue on Friday afternoon.

At 2:50, a Nissan Maxima pulled up to one of the houses and officers immediately closed in.

One of the suspects jumped out of the car and ran, but was stopped by police a short distance later.

When asked why he ran, he told police that he had a suspended license, even though police said he hadn’t been driving the car.

Police found a small amount of marijuana in his pocket.

While speaking with the first suspect, police questioned two more suspects in the car. The driver of the car said he pulled into the driveway to check his tires, then said he pulled into the driveway to change directions.

Police said that although the driver had a Vermont license, his Massachusetts license was suspended.

Police brought a police dog down to the scene to search the car for drugs. The dog identified the area of the suspect’s groin, where police found a large bag containing 23 smaller bags of heroin.

In total, police found 33 grams, or $4,000, worth of heroin.

Police arrested all three parties and also confiscated the car, four cell phones, and a GPS.

Candelario Espino, 20, from Randolph, was charged with trafficking in a Class A substance, and conspiracy to violate the controlled drug laws.

Wastter Guerra, 22, from Lynn was charged with, trafficking in a Class A substance, conspiracy, and operating after a suspended license.

Irlene Guerra, 20, from Lynn was charged with allowing unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, and conspiracy.
