Police seize drugs, gun from Dorchester market

A 60-year-old Dorchester store owner was arrested Friday for allegedly selling cocaine and heroin out of his shop, the Dolly Market on Dacia Street, Boston Police said.

Officers executed search warrants at the market, owned by Ramon Fermin of Mattapan, and another Dorchester address Friday afternoon and seized a 12-gauge shotgun, about 1,210 grams of suspected cocaine, 290 grams of suspected heroin, 1,688 grams of unknown brown and white powders, cutting agents, and $11,200 in cash, the statement said. Fermin faces several drug- and firearms-related charges, police said.


Carlos Pimentel, 37, of Dorchester was also arrested and charged with unlawful possession of ammunition and conspiracy to violate the drug laws, according to the statement.

The relationship of the two men is unclear at this time.
