Boston Pastor Charged With Drug Trafficking

The pastor was found with crack cocaine, fentanyl, oxycodone, Klonopin and Suboxone in addition to thousands of dollars worth of stolen property. 

 

A Boston pastor is facing charges after police found crack cocaine, prescription pills, and $20,000 worth of stolen items at his residence. 

According to NBC Boston, Willie Wilkerson is a pastor of Mission Church at 266 Quincy St. in the city's Dorchester neighborhood. He was arrested Tuesday on charges of trafficking and intent to distribute. After a search warrant was issued for Wilkerson’s home, church and a food trailer he owns, police found drugs hidden inside coffee makers and printers.

According to the report, investigators found crack cocaine, fentanyl, oxycodone, Klonopin, and Suboxone. Drug cutting and packaging materials were also found according to the district attorney's office.

Some family members of the pastor don’t believe it.

“That’s crazy. That’s a lie,” Ivette Mitchell, Wilkerson’s niece told NBC Boston. “God is going to clear Willie from everything and everybody.”

A judge ordered Wilkerson to be held without bail for 90 days, and then held on $50,000 bail after that. He is due in court on June 1.
