Officers arrested Daniel Lincoln, 38, of Revere and charged him with Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B, Class C, and Class D Drugs.

Said Commissioner Evans, “Even with changes to the laws, we are still seeing these drugs being sold illegally on the streets. THC and marijuana pose a risk to buyers who don’t know exactly what they’re getting, and firearms and weapons are often involved. Due to the public safety risks that come with the illicit sale of THC and marijuana, my officers will continue to work to take these drugs off the streets in efforts to keep Boston safe.”
