Local Duo Arrested for Dealing Crack, Ecstasy

A local man and woman were arrested Friday night for allegedly selling crack cocaine and ecstasy.

A pair of Salem residents were arrested Friday night on charges of possessing crack cocaine and ecstasy with intent to distribute.

At 6:03 p.m., Salem Police Department detectives reportedly acted on information gathered during a recent investigation into Ismael Pierre-Saint, 31, of 5 Pond St., Salem, who had reportedly sold rock cocaine to an undercover officer on three separate occasions.

While being arrested in his driveway on Pond Street, Pierre-Saint was reportedly found to be in possession of an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine.

He was arrested on three counts of possessing a class B substance (crack cocaine) with intent to distribute, three counts of possessing a class B substance (ecstasy) with intent to distribute and for having an outstanding warrant.

As a result of the investigation into Pierre-Saint, search warrants were executed at Pierre-Saint's home as well as at 129 Rainbow Terrace.

While searching the Rainbow Terrace home, police reportedly found more crack cocaine and ecstasy and arrested Latoya A. Olson, 29, of 5 Pond St., Salem, on  two counts of possessing a class B substance (crack cocaine, ecstasy) with intent to distribute and for having an outstanding warrant.

Police also reportedly took possession of a Honda Odyssey minivan and an undisclosed amount of money as a result of the investigation.

Salem detectives were reportedly assisted by members of the city's Special Response Unit.

I believe Salem patch reported that Latoya A. Olson lives at 129 Rainbow Terrace. If you recall she was reported to live at Rainbow Terrace last week when she crashed her car into a police cruiser at Loring ave and Rainbow terrace.
