BOSTON — Officers from the Boston Police Department’s District B-3 arrested a man on drug-related charges following a traffic stop in Roslindale on Monday evening.

At about 7:15 p.m., police observed a vehicle with a cracked windshield on 572 Cummins Highway.

A check revealed that the vehicle had failed to pass inspection for over 21 months.

Officers initiated a stop using emergency lights and sirens and approached the driver, identified as Lamar Tillery, 32, of Hyde Park.

Upon requesting Tillery’s license and registration, officers discovered his driver’s license was suspended.

Tillery was asked to exit the vehicle and was subsequently handcuffed.

A search during the booking process led to the discovery of multiple plastic bags suspected to contain heroin and crack cocaine, along with approximately $907 in cash.

Tillery faces charges including unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, possession with intent to distribute class A substances, and possession with intent to distribute class B substances.

He is slated for arraignment in Dorchester District Court.
