Two men charged with drug trafficking in Boston

Boston police on Friday arrested two men transporting large amounts of cocaine and cash, according to the department’s official blog.

Officers stopped a vehicle with a broken brake light near East Cottage and Batchelder streets in Dorchester around 2 p.m. Friday, police said.

Driver Jose Maldonado, 34, of Providence, allegedly produced a driver’s license that appeared to be forged and contained another man’s photo and description.

After securing a search warrant, officers found about 500 grams of cocaine, two cell phones, and $18,500 cash, police said.

Officers arrested Maldonado and passenger Firpo Pimentel, 34, of Boston. They charged Maldonado with operating without a license and possession of a forged registry document and both men with trafficking a Class B drug.
