BURLINGTON — Chief Michael Kent reports that Burlington Police charged two men with multiple drug-related offenses on Friday.
TUAN DANG, AGE 32, OF PELHAM, N.H., and DAREN LEWIS, AGE 39, OF QUINCY, were both charged with:
- Possession of a Class D Substance with Intent to Distribute (Marijuana)
- Distribution of Class D Substance (Marijuana)
- Money Laundering
At approximately noon on Friday, May 1, members of the Burlington Police Detective Division were conducting surveillance in the area of Old Concord Road following a tip of suspicious activity.
Detectives observed two males, later identified as DANG and LEWIS, meet in an area parking lot and conduct what was believed to be a drug transaction. Detectives approached the subjects and began an on-scene investigation.
As a result of the initial investigation and with the assistance of Officer John Pimentel and K-9 Pebbles from the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office, detectives recovered over 20 pounds of marijuana packaged for distribution and over $500,000 in cash. The amount of marijuana recovered has an estimated street value of $80,000-$100,000.
DANG and LEWIS were issued a summons to appear in Woburn District Court to be arraigned at a later date.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
