At a hearing Friday afternoon in Suffolk Superior Court, alleged South End drug dealer and convicted rapist Marcus Pixley's bail was revoked and he was taken into custody.
The decision was made after Pixley tested positive for cocaine on Friday afternoon, despite conditions of release ordering him to remain drug free. Pixley was also allegedly on cocaine when he was arrested by police in early October.
Pixley, who became a wanted fugitive after he was released on lowered bail because of the scandal at the Jamaica Plain State Drug Lab, was re-arrested on Oct. 5. He is a convicted rapist and also has numerous convictions for armed robbery, threats, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon spanning the last 25 years.
Pixley is due back in court on Monday.
