Burlington Man Arrested During Bust of Alleged Lawrence Drug Dealer



A Burlington man was among others arrested when an alleged Lawrence drug dealer was taken into custody.


Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Woburn Police Chief Robert Ferullo have announced that Georgia Reyes-Debello, 38 of Lawrence was arraigned Monday in Woburn District Court on one count of trafficking over 36 grams of heroin and violating the drug laws near a school in connection with an alleged drug distribution operation to sell over 90 grams of heroin/fentanyl.

Judge David Frank set bail at $10,000 cash.  The next date in this case is November 20, 2017.


Three others were arrested with Reyes-Debello. They are:


- Charles Justice, 46 of Burlington was arrested and charged with being present where heroin is kept.  He is expected to be arraigned in Woburn District Court tomorrow.


- Sue Franklin, 64 of Woburn was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a class B substance. She is expected to be arraigned in Woburn District Court tomorrow.

- Alyson Bradly, 38 of Woburn, Raymond Cowham, 24 of Woburn and Alissa Curtin, 34 of Woburn were also arrested on outstanding warrants.

According to authorities, on Friday, September 29, Woburn Police and members of the Southern Middlesex Regional Drug Task Force were executing a search warrant at a residence at Winn Park in Woburn as a result of a three month investigation into suspected drug activity at that location. Upon arrival at the residence police found suspected narcotics inside the home. Police subsequently learned that a delivery of heroin was expected to the apartment that same morning.

Police say that at approximately 10:40 a.m. the defendant allegedly arrived at the apartment.  Upon entering the apartment the defendant allegedly tried to flee when he saw the officers but was ordered to stop. Officers subsequently located in the defendant's clothing 23 individual packages of suspected narcotics, later identified through field testing as a mixture of heroin and fentanyl. Police also allegedly located an additional 70 baggies of what is believed to be the same mixture, hidden in a drug hide inside the defendant’s vehicle, a 2011 Toyota minivan.

In total over 90 grams of individually packaged narcotics, based on field testing to be heroin/fentanyl, were recovered.

This is an open and ongoing investigation being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Woburn Police and the Southern Middlesex Regional Drug Task Force. Five other individuals were also arrested as part of this investigation.
