WOONSOCKET â€“ Police arrested a Providence teenager whose alleged drug-drops in East Woonsocket so irked neighbors that one family asked the mayor to intervene this week.
Angel Peguero, 18, of 1030 Atwells Ave., was arrested Thursday on four counts of possession of crack cocaine with the intent to deliver, maintaining a narcotics nuisance, distribution of a controlled substance, distributing a controlled substance near a school, and possession of a controlled substance.
Detective Capt. Edward J. Lee Jr. said Peguero had been the subject of an investigation since mid-January and had sold drugs to undercover officers on several occasions.
Peguero arranged transactions with customers by cell phone and set up the deals at a number of locations including the parking lot of the CVS/Caremark pharmacy at the corner of Mendon Road and Cass Avenue. Thatâ€™s where the Tupper family, profiled in The Call earlier this week, complained of observing numerous broad-daylight drug deals and finding used hypodermic syringes discarded in and around their adjacent property.
