JetBlue pilot faces heroin charge

Police allege he obtained drug on Boston Common

When Boston police officers were surveying the stretch of Boylston Street between Boston Common and Washington Street for drug activity on Sunday evening, they took notice of four people walking toward Charles Street, including a pilot for JetBlue Airways Corp.

But it wasn’t John Manwaring, of Maitland, Fla., who piqued the officers’ interest. Rather they focused on the company they say he was keeping: Pedro Davilla, a man known to police for drug arrests, and Jennifer Robinson, a 31-year-old woman who officers consider to be a drug user, according to a police report written by Officer Brian J. Linehan and filed in Boston Municipal Court.
