Massachusetts Bus Driver Arrested on Drug Charges

bus.jpgCynthia King, 46, of Brockton, was arrested on Massachusetts Drug Crimes Charges after Boston Police conducted a search of her car at the MBTA bus yard in South Boston.

The investigation against Cynthia King reportedly began in May of 2010, when a confidential information allegedly told police that a driver for the MBTA was selling crack cocaine from the bus. Based on that information and subsequent surveillance by the Boston Police Drug Control Unit, the police were able to obtain and execute search warrants of King’s car and her person when she arrived to work and recovered crack cocaine, cash and other alleged drug paraphernalia, including digital scales and two cell phones.

Cynthia King as been formally charged with Unlawful Possession with Intent to Distribute a Class B Substance. Following her arraignment today in the Dorchester District Court, she was released on $1,000 cash bail.

King has been employed as a bus driver with the MBTA since 2002, but was suspended following her arrest on these drug charges. It’s unclear whether she was allegedly dealing drugs as she was driving buses for the MBTA, but that is presumed to be a matter under investigation.
