On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at about 8 AM, members of the Area C-6 Drug Control Unit (Dorchester), along with members of the B-2 (Roxbury) and E-13 (Jamaica Plain) DCU, arrested Christopher Boyer, 22, of Dorchester, on firearm and drug related charges connected to the execution of a search warrant.
Officers stopped Boyer as he was leaving his residence. Officers informed Boyer that they had obtained two search warrants—one for his person and another for his residence. They first conducted a search of his person and discovered a Smith and Wesson 45 Caliber firearm, loaded with one round in the chamber and six rounds in the magazine. Additionally, they found 14 plastic bags containing a total of 10 grams of crack cocaine, cleverly concealed within a false container of Armor All. The officers also seized $60 in US currency and the keys to Boyer’s apartment.
A search warrant was then executed at Boyer’s residence, resulting in the seizure of the following items: 127 grams of cocaine, 72 Adderall pills, 9 Clonazepam pills, 15 Fentanyl pills, $3,589 in US currency, several scales and baggies for drug packaging, and two plastic bags containing a total of 22 live rounds of ammunition.
Boyer was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with multiple offenses, including trafficking Class B cocaine, possession with intent to distribute Class B cocaine, possession with intent to distribute Class C Clonazepam, possession with intent to distribute Class A Fentanyl, unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.
