Two busted in Framingham on oxycodone trafficking charges – MetroWest Daily News

Two men are facing oxycodone trafficking charges after they conducted a drug deal in a parking lot next to a middle school on Wednesday, a prosecutor said in Framingham District Court on Thursday.

Jaime R. Casado, 24, of Marlborough, and Korey D. Jordan, 25, were  arrested at 2:40 p.m. on Flagg Drive, in a parking lot adjacent to Fuller Middle School, prosecutor Wynter Lavier said during the pair’s arraignment.

The Massachusetts State Police on Wednesday got a tip that Jordan, who had a warrant out of Stoughton District Court for motor vehicle violations, was on Flagg Drive in Framingham, Lavier said.

When officers arrived, they saw Jordan parked near Mass. Bay Community College in a Honda Accord. While there, they saw Casado leave the college, get into the car and then get out within 10 seconds.

“The troopers knew that this was behavior consistent to street-level drug transactions,” Lavier said.

Officers stopped Casado as he walked. The prosecutor said it appeared he was looking for a place to run before he finally laid on the ground and officers searched him.

“They found a plastic bag in his front right pocket,” said Lavier. “In the bag was a large amount of oxycodone pills.”

There were 200 pills in total.

Police then questioned Jordan, who had $960 in cash, as well as two cellphones, Lavier said.

Police charged Casado, of 31 Cook Lane, and Jordan, of 45 Grand St., with trafficking in oxycodone, conspiracy to violate the state’s drug laws and having drugs near a school.

Lavier asked Judge Robert Greco to hold both men on $50,000 bail. She said they are both facing a minimum of five and a half years in prison.

They both have extensive records, including several open cases, she said. Casado is facing a possession of cocaine charge out of Natick from April 2012, as well as a possession of oxycodone charge out of Natick from May. She asked that his bail be revoked on those two cases.

Casado has also served time in jail for both distributing a Class B substance and distributing marijuana, Lavier said.

Jordan, she said, has an open drug trafficking case out of Suffolk Superior Court. He is wearing a GPS monitoring device as part of the conditions of his release.

He also has an open firearm case in Dorchester, she said.

Greco set Casado’s bail at $2,500 and Jordan’s at $1,500. However, Greco also revoked their bail on their open cases, meaning they will be held without bail for at least 60 days.

They are due back in court on March 21 for a pretrial conference.
