On Sunday, Aug. 13, at approximately 11:40 p.m., a Hull Police Officer on patrol at Kenberma Street and Samoset Avenue witnessed a black SUV traveling at a high rate of speed on Samoset Avenue.
The officer conducted a motor vehicle stop. After obtaining the driver’s license and registration, the Hull Police Officer returned to his cruiser to relay the information to dispatch. At that time, he noticed the driver, identified as DURET, throwing drugs and drug paraphernalia out of the passenger side window. The officer then placed DURET under arrest.
While retrieving the items DURET had thrown on the ground, the officer noticed him edging toward his vehicle and reaching for .22 caliber handgun.
Additionally, police located multiple packages containing a white substance inside the vehicle, which was later determined to be cocaine.
DURET was booked at the Hull Police Department and held on $20,000 cash bail pending his arraignment at Hingham District Court.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
