Weymouth: Man arrested again on drug charges

Drug suspect Patrick O'Neill

A Weymouth man with a criminal past is in trouble again.

28-year-old Patrick O’Neill is charged with distributing prescription painkillers.

He was arrested after police searched his Madison St. home as part of a lengthy investigation that began when neighbors said they suspected drug dealing.

In addition to drugs in the home, police say O’Neill had dozens of Oxycodone pills on him…as well as $500 in cash.

O’Neill has a history of drug arrests dating back several years including a conviction in 2008.

He also has several open drug cases out of Quincy District Court stemming from his arrest last August.
