A third male, 34, from Braintree, will be summoned to court on charges of Conspiracy to Violate Drug Laws.

On Jan. 11, law enforcement executed search warrants in Randolph and Braintree, which led to the recovery of approximately 763 pounds of marijuana valued at $1.5 million, THC candy, THC oil, and $468,713 in cash.

The seizures occurred at multiple locations associated with the suspects, with the initial tip-off coming from activities at a Randolph residence.
