Two Boston-area women should have had their coffee before allegedly breaking into a car early Wednesday, because adrenaline apparently wasn't enough to keep them awake.
Boston Police said that around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday a woman was on her way to work when she noticed two people fast asleep in her car, which was parked on Harrison Avenue.
When police arrived, they found Jean Marcellus, 30, of Boston, and Nicole Makseyn, 38, of Lexington in the vehicle. Police said they recovered several plastic bags of a "green leafy substance" believed to be marijuana.
Marcellus and Makseyn both face a charge of breaking and entering a motor vehicle. Marcellus was additionally charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
