Nearby News: Multiple Cocaine Arrests in Somerville

Each weekend we'll take a look at the top headlines from Medford's neighbors:

Somerville Police Make Series of Cocaine Arrests

SOMERVILLE—The Somerville Police Department made a series cocaine-related arrests during mid-December, according to police reports. In one instance, an undercover operative led investigators to an alleged dealer known as "El Diablo."

As part of the investigation, members of the Drug Control Unit arranged a meeting with "El Diablo" in the parking lot of Home Depot on Dec. 11 for the purpose of buying 56 grams of cocaine, the report says.

Linden School 'Safe and Sound' After Knife Incident

MALDEN—School officials confirmed that a student was in possession of a knife on the Linden School campus Wednesday, but that another student's tip allowed administrators to quickly confiscate the weapon.

The student acknowledged carrying a knife and surrendered it to Principal Richard Bransfield, Superintendent DeRuosi said. A subsequent locker search turned up no other contraband

MELROSE—The Framingham State University student killed last Friday night was also a Melrose native.

Colleen Kelly, 21, who was expected to graduate from Framingham State University in 2013, was an English major, who just completed a 12-week internship at Fuller Middle School.

She wanted to be a teacher and "was looking ahead to a bright and promising future," said Framingham Superintendent of Schools Stacy Scott.

. She made it halfway when she was struck in the eastbound lane, thrown into the westbound lane, where she was hit again. Both drivers stopped. Framingham Police are investigating.

Arlington High Teams Forced to Forfeit Wins from Last Year

ARLINGTON—Arlington High School has been required to forfeit several wins by some of its athletic programs during the 2011-2012 school year.

These forfeitures result from the recently discovered fact that several student athletes who competed for Arlington interscholastic teams last school year were academically ineligible to compete under Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) rules.

In all, twelve teams included ineligible players and eight of these teams have had to forfeit winning games.
