The arrests occurred while the Boston police drug control unit was conducting surveillance near the St. Francis House shelter on Boylston Street at about 4:45 p.m. Monday. Officers reported observing several suspected drug transactions by Marshall and Taylor, officials said.

During the arrest, officers discovered a loaded handgun and 21 plastic bags of what is believed to be crack cocaine in the suspects’ possession.
