After being arrested for driving without a license, police found more than 20 grams of crack-cocaine in the pants of Kemar Dwight Martin, 36, from Boston. Detectives that were assigned to the Gang Unit were on patrol at 10 p.m., Feb. 2, when they pulled Martin over for having a missing rear license plate light.
After they pulled over the car, a Nissan Altima, the detectives discovered that Marin was driving without a license. Martin told the detectives that he had to go to a class to retrieve his license, but has yet do to so. Martin was taken into police custody for motor vehicle violations and driving with a suspended license. According to the police, Martin started to refuse orders at the booking desk and was uncooperative when asked questions.
The police then asked Martin if he was carrying drugs, an allegation he denied. During the search on his person, police detectives found 17.4 grams of cocaine rocks and also 4.5 grams of powdered cocaine. After finding the drugs, police arrested Martin for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and a motor vehicle lights violation and trafficking cocaine.
Martin is expected to be arraigned for the accusations against him, and will have police records following his arrest. The drug and traffic violations against him will become public records and the public will be able to access them. Conducting a background check on Martin and others like him enables people to know about the criminal arrest records in their past, which can be a life saver in cases of a violent criminal history.
