January 11, 2019 – Yesterday at approximately 3:30p.m., a motor vehicle stop in Saugus led to the arrest of a Quincy man for his second offense of operating under the influence of liquor and his second offense of possessing a class B substance, among other charges.
Trooper James Maloney was on patrol on Route 1 North when he observed a green Toyota Avalon driving erratically through traffic. The vehicle was swerving in and out of the right travel lane and breakdown lane nearly striking other vehicles also traveling northbound. Trooper Maloney activated his blue lights and stopped the Avalon near the Lynnfield town line.
The operator, who was unable to produce a valid driver’s license upon Trooper Maloney’s request, initially, falsely identified himself and provided two false social security numbers.
As a result of an investigation, with assistance from Trooper Daniel Hinchion, Trooper Maloney was able to positively identify the operator as KEVIN WORKS, 40 of Quincy. A check with the registry of motor vehicles revealed WORKS license was suspended and he was also found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia with residue believed to be a cocaine and a container of an alcoholic beverage. WORKS was placed under arrest and transported to the Danvers Barracks where he was booked on the following charges:
1.) Operating Under the Influence of Liquor, 2nd Offense;
2.) Possession of Class A, Subsequent Offense;
3.) Motor Vehicle Operator Refuse to Identify Self;
4.) Operating with a Suspended License;
5.) Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
6.) Possession of Open Container;
8.) Passing Violation; and
9.) Breakdown Lane Violation.
WORKS was scheduled to be arraigned today on the above charges in Lynn District Court.
No further information is available. Please do not call the barracks directly for media inquiries.
