Wayland Police Arrest Wilmington Man on Drug Charges

The following information was supplied by the Wayland Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A Wilmington man passing through Wayland on his way to work was arrested Monday afternoon on motor vehicle and drug charges.

Wayland Det. Sgt. Jamie Berger noticed a rejected inspection sticker on a vehicle driven by Keith Brandano, 24, of Avon Street in Wilmington. When Berger ran the the license plate number, he found that Brandano had a suspended license.

Berger conducted a traffic stop and placed Brandano under arrest, charging him with operating after suspension (subsequent offense) and having a rejected inspection sticker.

Upon performing an inspection of the vehicle, Berger discovered a few pills, a bottle of cough medicine with codeine and a scale with a residue on it.

Berger said the amount of pills found was small -- one pill each of Suboxone, a drug prescribed to treat opiate dependence; Ritalin, a drug commonly used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder; and an unidentified pill that Brandano claimed was Seroquel, a drug used to treat schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.

Brandano was subsequently charged with illegal possession of a class B drug, illegal possession of a class C drug, and two counts of illegal possession of a class E drug.

He was released Monday night and is expected to appear for arraignment Tuesday at Framingham District Court.
