Boston City Employee Faces Drug Trafficking Charges

Gregory J. Joran, 30, of Hyde Park, Massachusetts, is facing Drug Charges for trying to pickup a FedEx package containing thousands of illicit pills, including oxycodone and alprazolam (xanax). He is to be charged with Drug Trafficking and Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs.

The Boston Police Department, along with the Massachusetts State Police, allegedly received a tip to investigate a package that was delivered to a FedEx/Kinkos in Boston’s Post Office Square. The police officers opened the package, confirmed it contained drugs, and then resealed it.

According to Boston Police, Horan arrived later that morning to pickup the package. Once he walked out with it, police were waiting and arrested him. Aside from the package, he was also found to allegedly possess two plastic bags containing 21 oxycodone pills and 25 oxycontin pills.

According to the Mayor’s Office, Horan was employed by the City of Boston’s Human Resources Department as a worker’s compensation claims agent. He is the second City of Boston employee that has been arrested on drug charges. Last year, John M. Forbes, who was employed as the Mayor’s liason for East Boston, was arrested when he allegedly tried to sell 125 oxycontin tablets for $5,000 to a confidential informant.
