RUTLAND — A 36-year-old man was arrested following an operation in Rutland.
Authorities say they executed a search warrant at 308 West Street at around 11:30 a.m. on October 17.
The execution of the search warrant stemmed from a four-month drug investigation.
During the execution of the search warrant, police say they arrested Kevin Seward, of Rutland, on five counts of sale of cocaine.
The investigation into Seward’s distribution of cocaine involved the use of confidential informants who purchased cocaine base from Seward on five separate occasions.
During the investigation, police say they identified Seward’s West Street residence as a point of drug distribution and a location where others were known to frequently gather to use controlled substances.
Tuesday’s search of the residence yielded evidence of drug use and drug distribution.
Seward is due in court in Rutland at a later date.
Police say he is being prosecuted by the Rutland County State’s Attorney’s Office.
