Hector Oquendo, 24, of 13B Eutaw St., Lawrence, was charged with possession with intent to distribute Class B (cocaine), possession with intent to distribute Class B in a school zone, drinking in public, trespassing after notice, and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.
Jose Martinez, 26, of 121 Lowell St., #2, Lawrence, was charged with drinking in public and trespassing after notice.
Patrolman Joseph Padellaro said he was patrol on High Street around 7 p.m. when he saw a car with the engine running in Storrow Park with three occupants. The park is closed from dawn to dusk because of illegal activity in the area so Padellaro illuminated the car and approached it.
He saw three males inside making furtive movements, so he called for back-up and told the occupants to keep their hands up over their heads. After calling for back-up, Padellaro had the three men get out of the car. A search later turned up open bottles of beer, packets of cocaine, and marijuana. During questioning, police were able to decipher who owned what.
