HULL — Chief John Dunn reports that the Hull Police Department arrested and charged a man with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of heroin on Monday.
JOSEPH MUZZI, AGE 32, OF SOMERVILLE, was arrested and charged with:
- Possession of a Class A Drug (Heroin)
- Trafficking Methamphetamine Over 18 Grams
At approximately 12:45 p.m. on Monday, April 11 Hull Police received a report that a man who was evicted from a home on Nantasket Avenue earlier that morning was on the premises allegedly breaking bottles. It was also alleged that he had a knife on him.
Upon arrival, officers observed broken glass on the ground and located the man, later identified as MUZZI. During a search of the premises, officers did not observe any property damage.
During a search of his person, officers located a knife in MUZZI‘s possession. While officers were attempting to search his person, he allegedly refused to take his hands out of his front pocket.
Once he complied and removed his hands, officers observed two small glassine bags that were believed to contain substances consistent with heroin and methamphetamines. At this time, MUZZI allegedly attempted to flee but was quickly detained by Hull Police.
MUZZI was placed under arrest and was transported to the Hull Police station for booking. He was arraigned yesterday in Hingham District Court.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
