Something he just couldn’t get at Shaw’s

Police drug investigation officers focused their attention on a particular individual last Saturday, as he appeared to behave in a manner consistent with someone waiting to make an illegal drug purchase, according to police reports.

Jake Silveira, 22, had reportedly been using his cell phone frequently and appeared to be waiting for someone to arrive where he was located, at the Shaw’s Supermarket on McGrath Hwy.

As Silveira waited inside the store, another individual arrived in a car, Joseph Flynn, 23, who police reportedly recognize as someone who had been arrested before on drug dealing charges.

Police watched as Flynn met with Silveira inside Shaw’s. They were observed walking around in the store but they made no purchases before coming outside, police said.

The two men were stopped outside the store and questioned about what they were doing.

Flynn reportedly told officers that he only came to the store to buy cigarettes, even though he never did so.

Both men were found to be in possession of drugs and were placed under arrest, charged with possession, conspiracy to violate drug law. Silveira was found to have an active warrant out for disorderly conduct.
