Man arrested for selling drugs out of baby carriage – with baby inside

BOSTON (WHDH) - Police arrested a Boston man on drug charges on Friday after he was found selling drugs while pushing a baby carriage.

On Friday, Boston Police officers were investigating drug complaints near Bushnell and Carruth Streets in Dorchester when they saw what appeared to be a drug transaction.

Officers watched a man exit his car and approach another man who was pushing a baby carriage. Officers approached the buyer, who confirmed he bought drugs from the carriage-pushing man.

Officers approached the man pushing the baby carriage and noticed he dropped a napkin that contained 14 small bags of crack cocaine.

Police arrested the man, Odalberto Willalona, 48 of Boston. Police also confirmed that there was a 1-year-old infant inside the baby carriage. Willanona was charged with possession with intent to distribute.

The Department of Children and Families will follow up with an investigation to look into the child’s safety and well-being, according to authorities.
