Chief Terence M. Delehanty reports that the Winthrop Police Department, working in close cooperation with Revere Police and the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, charged a woman last week in connection with cocaine trafficking.
Kathleen T. Sullivan, 49, of Winthrop, was arrested and charged with:
- Cocaine Trafficking Over 100 Grams Less Than 200 Grams
- Possession of a Class B Substance With Intent to Distribute (Subsequent Offense)
- Possession of a Class C Substance With Intent to Distribute
In addition, Sullivan faces multiple charges of Distribution of a Class B Substance (Subsequent Offense) out of Chelsea District Court.
At approximately 6:10 a.m., Winthrop Police, Revere Police Narcotics/Gang Unit detectives and the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department executed multiple search warrants at an apartment on Shirley Street in Winthrop.
Officers located Sullivan inside the apartment and she was taken into custody without incident.
During a subsequent search of the apartment and Sullivan’s person, investigators located several plastic bags containing 135 grams of a white rock-like substance that was identified as crack cocaine. The search also yielded more than $1,600 in cash, as well as several Oxycodone and Clonazepam pills and items consistent with drug distribution.
Sullivan’s arrest was the result of a collaborative investigation involving the Winthrop and Revere Police, as well as the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department.
“The investigation was initiated after receiving complaints from area residents and business owners,” Chief Delehanty said. “This case is a perfect example of the community trusting and having confidence in local law enforcement and passing on information that results in improved quality of life in our neighborhoods.”
“I’m proud of the work of all of the officers involved in this case,” Revere Police Chief James Guido said. “Our regional partnerships have once again proved to be an invaluable asset for both of our communities.”
“The hard work by both police departments in taking drugs off of our streets plays a vital role in making our communities safer,” Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo said.
Sullivan was scheduled to be arraigned this morning in East Boston District Court.
