Crime Files: Jose Morales
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Springfield police say 22-year old Jose Morales is a known drug dealer.
“Drugs is what fuels crime in Springfield, so we take that seriously the fact that drug dealers take over street corners and sell drugs to people,” said Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney.
That’s exactly what cops say Morales did and they caught him in the act back in June.
“He set up camp next to an elderly housing complex on Morgan Street next to a city park. Two of his friends were selling heroin and marijuana and detectives do a great job on surveillance. They were watching these guys do sales for a good part of the afternoon,” said Delaney.
Cops moved in and they were all arrested, but they say Jose Morales skipped bail and that put him on Springfield’s wanted list.
