Willie Wilkerson, 58, minister at the Quincy Street Missional Church founded by his mother, Idene "Ma Siss" Wilkerson, faces several drug-trafficking charges, after searches at his home and the church, the Boston Police Department reports.
The Boston Police Department says officers found 34 grams of crack cocaine, 11 grams of fentanyl, 50 Percocet pills, 87 Suboxone strips and 32 Clonopin pills at the 266 Quincy St. church and at Wilkerson's Baker Street home, along with $10,400 in cash.
