Boston City Hall worker among 29 swept up in drug bust

Gary Jamal Webster, 35, of Boston, City Councilor Michelle Wu’s former $53,058-a-year director of constituent services, was among the 29 people facing charges as a result of what authorities dubbed “Operation Nor’easter.”

Cops say Webster dealt thousands of dollars worth of cocaine and fentanyl to informants from his father’s home on Codman Hill in Dorchester in the fall of 2016 — when Wu was council president.

Webster “allegedly arranged numerous drug deals on the taxpayer’s dime, while on the job working for the city of Boston,” said Harold “Hank” Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston field offices. It was not alleged that Webster was dealing at City Hall itself.

Webster now works for the Boston Planning & Development Agency, which said it placed him on unpaid leave yesterday.
