A man who said he was living at the Occupy Boston encampment in Boston’s Dewey Square is facing drug dealing charges.
Officers arrested Adam Brisbois, 28, of Boston in the South Station bus terminal Monday night after he sold seven clonidine pills to undercover officers in the bathroom for $14, Boston police said in a statement. Clonidine is used to treat high blood pressure and other disorders.
Brisbois was charged with possession with intent to distribute both Class C and Class E drugs, police said.
When the officers asked Brisbois where he lived, he allegedly told them, “I’m occupying. I have in blue tent in there,” gesturing toward Dewey Square. Brisbois told officers he had been protesting for more than a week, police said.
When he was arrested, Brisbois said he had been involved in the movement for over a week. During booking, he provided an address of Dewey Square, Boston, police said.
There have been several arrests near or in the tent city on drug-related charges in recent weeks.
Since the Occupy protesters arrived, “officers have noticed an increase in drug activity in and around the South Station/Dewey Square area,” police said.
