Tewksbury Police Headquarters.

Drug dealers keep trying different locations in North Tewksbury to conduct business and the Tewksbury Police Department seems to be there every week for more arrests.
Cracker Barrel was the scene Monday at 7 p.m., when Tewksbury officers encountered two alleged dealers with multiple types of drugs in their possession.
Gina M. Valentine, 32, of 64A Belmont St., Watertown, was arrested and charged with possession of a Class A drug with intent to distribute, three counts of possession of a Class E drug and possession of a Class B drug.
