A Waltham man was arrested Thursday after officers spotted his involvement in a possible drug deal near Chilton Park.
Dean Hadley, 43, was charged with possession of a Class-B substance (methadone) Aug. 22 after an officer observed him possibly engage with a female in a “hand transaction consistent to the sale of drugs,” according to Milton Deputy Police Chief John E. King.
When both suspects got into their cars to leave the area, an officer pulled Hadley over on Blue Hills Parkway.
The officer discovered a cut-down straw which had a white powdery substance inside of it, according to King.
The officer patted Hadley down and recovered methadone pills, a class-B substance, which he had concealed near his groin area. He was placed under arrest.
Officers attempted to locate and stop the female but were not able to.
