Five people are facing charges after Boston police discovered drugs behind the counter of a Charlestown restaurant.
Rafael Pimental, 46, Juan Guerrero-Torres, 28, Matea Sanchez, 60, Rosselys Pimental-Melo, 23, and Ada Mejia-Mejia, 40 - all of Charlestown - are facing drug charges.
Officers responded to D’Rafa Restaurant at 156 Bunker Hill St. on Monday afternoon following an investigation that culminated in the execution of several search warrants.
Police seized a half kilogram of Fentanyl, 29 plastic bags of cocaine/crack cocaine, 10 plastic bags of heroin and $7,144 in cash.
Suffolk district attorney's office said only three of the five arrested were arraigned on Tuesday: Pimental-Melo, who was held on $100,000; Sanchez, who was held on $50,000; and Guerrero-Tejeda, who was held on $80,000.
Pimental and Mejia-Mejia will be arraigned on Wednesday.
Operations at the restaurant have been shut down due to the imminent health hazard.
