From the Wareham Police Department:
Within the last two weeks the Wareham Police Detective Division, acting on tips, began an investigation into suspected drug dealing at 6 Windy Hill Drive in West Wareham. After making various observations, the detectives obtained a search warrant for the address and had identified suspects.
On Tuesday, October 15, detectives set up surveillance at the Windy Hill Drive location and followed the suspects as they drove to multiple locations in Wareham and New Bedford. At about 2:45 p.m., the car pulled into the New England Farms Store, near the Wareham police station, where detectives and patrol officers converged on their vehicle. Three individuals were placed under arrest after detectives found suspected heroin, as well as multiple pills, a digital scale, and “corner bags”, all consistent with illegal drug activity.
Later at about 3:40 p.m., detectives and patrol officers served a search warrant at 6 Windy Hill Drive. There the detectives confiscated more “corner bags”, three digital scales, Suboxone, and suspected heroin.
Arrested were the following:
Acting Chief John Walcek said, “These drug arrests were a direct result of citizen complaints to the tip line and Text-a-Tip.” He added, “Drug dealers should be warned that we will continue the push to arrest them and bring them to justice.”
