While working an undercover detail at the Boat House on Shore Drive last Saturday, a Somerville Police Narcotics Detective reportedly witnessed what he deemed to be suspicious activity on the part of an individual who was pacing around in the parking lot while speaking to someone on a cell phone.

Shortly thereafter the man in question was picked up and driven to a residence, which he then entered, according to police.

Continuing the rolling surveillance, the officer eventually confronted the vehicle’s driver, James Lacascia, 50, of Medford, who was found to be operating the vehicle with a suspended license.

He admitted to being in possession of 30 Suboxone pills, but had no valid prescription for them, police said. He was arrested for drug possession and operation of a motor vehicle with a suspended license.

    I want to commend this officer for his diligence. I grew up in the Ten Hills area and still have family there. Drugs are the scourge of our society. Keep up the good work-this is police work at its best.

    It happens in the best of families. The image of a drug addict is not the image you grew up with. It’s your family, your neighbors, your colleagues. You could be living with an addict and not even realize it.
