On October 14, 2020 Anthony Rafael Corcino, 32, of Lawrence was arrested and charged at the US District Court in Boston with conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine, as well as with attempted possession with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine.

In May 2020, Corcino allegedly sought to obtain a parcel shipped to a business in Wilmington, which was subsequently found to contain 23 kilograms of cocaine.  After initially failing to obtain the drugs, Corcino had multiple communications with an undercover federal agent in which he attempted to obtain the parcel.
