At about 1:07 PM on Tuesday, August 1, 2017, members of the District C-11 (Dorchester) Drug Control Unit along with members of the Quincy Police Drug Control Unit and the Massachusetts State Police executed a search warrant as part of an ongoing investigation in the area of 14 Banton Street in Dorchester. As a result, officers were able to locate and seize 502 grams of heroin, 445 grams of cocaine and $5,957 in cash. Officers then arrested Kelvin Veras-Romero, 32, of South Boston and Santiago Olivares, 32, of Dorchester without incident.
