An Marlborough woman reportedly told police she sold cocaine to people in the Marlborough and Hudson area after she was caught with 14 grams of the drug bagged for sale in her apartment in Marlborough.
"(Pacheco) also admitted she picks up 10 grams of cocaine once a week, brings it home ... and packages the narcotics up there into salable increments," said Marlborough Police Det. John Manning. "She also admitted that she sells the cocaine to cocaine users around the Marlborough and Hudson area for profit to help her in paying her bills."
