At about 8:12 AM on Monday, February 8, 2016, members of the District C-6 (South Boston) and District B-3 (Mattapan) Drug Control Units executed search warrants in the area of 23 Nightingale Street, Dorchester.

Officers arrested Garrison and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, and Possession with Intent to Distribute Class D (Marijuana). Garrison will be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.
