Boston police on Friday arrested two men charges of transporting large amounts of cocaine and cash. Authorities said officers stopped a vehicle with a broken brake light near East Cottage and Batchelder streets in Dorchester around 2 p.m. Friday. Jose Maldonado, 34, of Providence, allegedly produced a driver’s license that appeared to be forged and contained another man’s photo and description. After securing a search warrant, officers found about 500 grams of cocaine, two cellphones, and $18,500 in cash, police said. Officers arrested Maldonado and a passenger, Firpo Pimentel, 34, of Boston. They charged Maldonado with operating without a license and possession of a forged registry document, and both men with trafficking a Class B drug.
