Gloucester District Court: Lynn man get continuance on drug, other charges

A cocaine possession charge brought against a Lynn man arrested after a controlled drug buy in Gloucester was continued without a finding Friday in Gloucester District Court.

Judge Joseph Jennings continued the case against Juan Rodriguez-Rosari, 21, of 112 South St., Lynn, until September 2013, and placed him on probation, subject to drug and alcohol screens.

Rodriguez was also charged with possessing drugs in a school zone, resisting arrest, and failure to stop for police.

He pleaded guilty to the resisting arrest charge, for which he was fined $100 and also placed on probation through September 2013.

Police arrested Rodriguez after a confidential source told officers he had purchased cocaine from Rodriguez.

Under police supervision, the source called Rodriguez to buy 3.5 grams of cocaine for $160. Officers set up a controlled buy, and after carrying it out on Herrick Court, police were waiting for him on Friend Street.

When police activated the lights on an undercover car, Rodriguez tried to back around them and head down the other side of Friend street. But he lost control of his vehicle and damaged a parked car and a rock wall around 31 Friend Street.

Rodriguez then tried to run from his vehicle, and was tackled by an officer and arrested.

Charges of drunken driving and leaving the scene of property damage accident brought against a Gloucester woman Friday were continued without a finding.

Bisa Connors, 54, of 42 Harrison Ave., admitted to sufficient facts regarding the charges, and Jennings continued both without a finding until June 2013.

Connors will be on probation requiring alcohol screens until then. Jennings also ordered Connors to pay a total of $600 in head injury, victim witness, and drunken driving victims assessments.

According to court documents, officers arrested Connors at her home Feb. 19 after receiving a call about an erratic operator.

They found Connors' vehicle hanging out of a parking space at 42 Harrison Ave. A resident at the scene told them Connors had struck her car, and a rock wall. Connors vehicle's passenger side mirror had been broken off as well.
