ABINGTON- You could buy more than cars at Midway Motors, police said after making the second drug bust in as many years at the Brockton Avenue used-car business.

The arrest of Midway Motors' finance manager, Duane Glenn, 47, of Kingston, was one of three weekend drug arrests in town, Police Chief David Majenski said Monday.

Glenn was arrested Saturday afternoon after selling cocaine to an undercover investigator, according to Majenski. It was the fourth time in September that police bought cocaine from Glenn, the chief said.

In unrelated activity, police made two other drug arrests on Brockton Avenue, one on Saturday while setting up surveillance near Midway Motors and the other on Sunday.

While local police are making progress in the war on drugs, Majenski said, he is especially concerned about the repeat activity at Midway Motors.

The sales were made in the back of the building after investigators called Glenn to arrange the purchases, he said.

"(Glenn) had more cocaine inside his coat in the office at Midway," Majenski said.

"His pay stub was also in that jacket. In the office, powdered cocaine was laid out inside a credenza along with other drug paraphernalia," Majenski said.

In all, police seized more than a pound of cocaine from Glenn, the chief said.

According to the chief, Glenn's office is an open space, not separated by a door, and police spoke to the business owner, Michael Devaney.

Devaney has not been charged. He declined to comment when reached at the dealership Monday night.

Police arrested another Midway Motors employee two years ago and charged him with conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
In that incident, police said they found two bags of marijuana in the employee's SUV at Midway and alleged he was a supplier for an employee of a nearby business who was also charged in that case.

"To me, it shows a disturbing pattern of behavior," the chief said.

The Abington town manager, contacted to discuss what might now happen to Midway's business license, was not available Monday.

Glenn, of 8 Ocean Hill Drive, Kingston, was charged with trafficking in cocaine and four counts of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

In the other weekend drug arrests, Jon Ferry, 33, of 71 Webster St., Apt. 310, Weymouth, was charged with illegal possession of OxyContin. Police said they observing him in his vehicle with three 80-gram pills.

Majenski said Ferry tried to flee when police caught him with the pills in the front seat of his vehicle, but officers cut off the vehicle and grabbed him out of his SUV before it rolled into a fence.

The third drug arrest of the weekend came at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, also in a commercial parking lot on Brockton Avenue.

Police said they intercepted a drug deal, based on information gathered in an ongoing investigation.

Jose Landon, 40, of 282 Columbus Ave., Boston, was charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute after seizing 24 grams of cocaine from him, according to Majenski.

He said police are not letting up in their fight to get drugs out of town.

"I am hearing that people in the drug trade are hesitant to come through Abington," Majenski said. "To me, that is a positive sign in a fight to keep drugs out of town."
