A JetBlue pilot is among six people arrested in an investigation of drug dealing in Boston.

Police say Maitland, Florida, resident John Manwaring and a woman with him were charged with heroin possession after Sunday's arrests in connection with drug dealing near the Boston Common public park. Two men were charged with dealing heroin. Another man was charged with cocaine possession. And another was charged with trespassing.

Manwaring and the others pleaded not guilty Monday. Manwaring was released on his own recognizance. He declined to speak with reporters afterward. He returns to court Aug. 13.

New York-based JetBlue Airways Corp. says it has removed Manwaring from duty and will cooperate with authorities. JetBlue says it has a rigorous drug testing program and a no-tolerance policy.
