Boston police officers jumped rooftops over an alley to chase down three people before arresting them atop a three-story apartment building in Dorchester over the weekend, officials said. The officers also arrested three others inside 580 Blue Hill Ave. and seized three guns, 12 pounds of marijuana, more than 200 grams of cocaine, 190 grams of heroin, and a tactical bulletproof vest, according to Boston police. The chase happened at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Gilbert Rodriguez-Diaz, 21; Josue Santana, 31; Jose Justiniano, 38; Leidys Lugo-Meija, 24; Maykor Baez, 20; and Jonathan Garcia, 22, all of Boston, were charged with trafficking heroin and may face additional charges, police said.
