If I know someone is dealing drugs do I legally have to tell the police?

Additional Information:

I’ve been dating this guy for about 4 months and found out he is dealing drugs. I’ve never been part of any of it, but I suspected it and just recently found out for sure when someone he obviously didn’t know came to his apartment in Boylston and there was an exchange.  I don’t want to get into any trouble and I don’t want him to get in any trouble.  Do I legally have to tell the police what I know?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

This is very serious issue and you should definitely not speak to the police who if you provide evidence may also charge you with conspiracy. You should speak to legal counsel who can advise you regarding this matter to avoid legal action against you.
