Police: Salem man caught with heroin, bullets

SALEM — Police say a Pope Street man was arrested on drug and ammunition charges yesterday after officers showed up at his residence to serve a warrant.

Jamel James Johnson, 26, of 12 Pope St., Salem, was arrested on charges of possession of a class A drug with intent to distribute and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Police showed up at Johnson’s apartment about 11 a.m. to serve a Swampscott arrest warrant with motor vehicle charges, according to the incident log and an interview with Capt. Thomas Griffin.

“He owed some fines,” Griffin said, adding that a subsequent investigation determined Johnson was in possession of two bags of heroin and some bullets.

Johnson was arrested without incident and police had cleared the scene with 20 minutes of their arrival.
