A Quincy man is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges he was operating a large drug operation from jail.

Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey says officials at the jail where 24-year-old David Courage was awaiting trial on an assault and battery charge became aware he was using jail phones to sell the illegal drug “molly, in order to raise bail money.

“My hats off to the people in the Sheriff’s office. They were right on the ball and paying attention, and through various means picked up the scheme,” said Morrissey.

Morrissey says that Courage was coordinating with a woman he had a relationship with, 25-year-old Cory Lyn Wojcuilewicz, who was subsequently arrested during an arranged traffic stop.

Courage is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Dedham District Court on a charge of conspiracy to violate the drug law.
