Four arrested with heroin
Four men were arrested on drug charges Wednesday, after police said they saw several drug transactions take place inside a Burgin Parkway condominium.

According to police, officers were doing surveillance at the Sunny Lea condos on Wednesday around 6 p.m. when police saw a suspect go into the house and leave a short while later.

Police pulled the suspect over and asked him to open the door. The suspect initially refused and put his hands up to his mouth while swallowing something with a large swig of water, police said.

According to police, officers asked the suspect what he had been doing in the building, and he answered that police didn’t have anything to arrest him for. The suspect was nonetheless arrested and taken into custody.

Robert Donahue, 42, from Quincy was charged with possession of a Class A substance (heroin), misleading a police investigation, and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Drug Laws.

Police went back to the condo and saw two more men pull up to the building. One suspect remained in the car while the other suspect went into the condo and came out a short while later, police said.

Police stopped both men as they drove away. The men admitted to buying a $40 bag of heroin from a man.

Sean Sullivan, 43, from Weymouth, and Mark Picard, 40, from East Weymouth were both arrested and charged with possession of a Class A substance (heroin) and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Drug Laws.

Police said they maintained watch on the building and looked for a man fitting the second and third suspects’ descriptions. Soon, a man matching the description exited the building to take out the trash.

Police approached him, but as they got closer, the suspect allegedly put something in his mouth and tried to swallow it. The suspect eventually spit out 12 bags of heroin, police said.

Police said the suspect also had two bags of white substance believed to be cocaine in his possession.

Felix Rodriguez, 25, from Dorchester was charged with possession of a Class A substance with intent to distribute, possession of a Class B substance with intent to distribute, distribution of a Class A substance, and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Drug Laws.

Motorcycle man arrested for recklessness

A 28-year-old Quincy man was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly driving recklessly on several occasions.

According to police, the suspect was operating a white and green dirt bike on Granite Street when officers saw him do several motor vehicle infractions. Police said they tried to pull him over, but the suspect fled.

Police said the suspect fled on Granite towards Burgin Parkway and once on Burgin, officers gave up the chase due to safety concerns.

A short while later, another officer saw a man fitting the description on Granite Street near Water Street.

According to police, the officer stopped all traffic in an effort to stop the suspect, but the suspect went on the sidewalk on his dirt bike and drove at the officer, causing the officer to jump out of the way.

The suspect disappeared again until a detective monitoring the area saw the suspect again pushing the dirt bike. When police approached him, the suspect allegedly dropped the bike and ran. Officers were able to catch him after a brief pursuit on foot.

Matthew McLean, 28, from Quincy was arrested for driving to endanger, failure to stop for a police officer while operating a motor vehicle, operating without a license, and speeding.
