GREENFIELD — In a coordinated strike against local narcotics operations, the Northwestern District Anti-Crime Task Force, aided by the Greenfield Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police STOP team, executed a search warrant on Friday at a residence on 83 Hope Street, leading to the seizure of drugs and firearms and the arrest of two individuals.

Officials recovered approximately 91 grams of suspected cocaine, 1,149 bags of suspected heroin/fentanyl, $1,649 in cash, and two illegally possessed handguns during the meticulous search of the premises.

Bucky Maynard, 44, from Turners Falls, was taken into custody and charged with multiple offenses, including trafficking in fentanyl, cocaine, conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act, and several firearm-related crimes, reflecting the gravity of the allegations against him.

Taylor Cotter, 31, a Greenfield resident, was also arrested and faces similar charges to Maynard’s, including trafficking in fentanyl and cocaine, along with multiple firearm violations.

Both suspects were booked at Greenfield Police Department and are facing serious charges that underscore the ongoing battle against drug-related activities in the area.

The successful operation is a result of the continued efforts by law enforcement to crackdown on the illegal narcotics trade and associated crimes.

The Northwestern District Attorney’s office is handling media inquiries regarding this case.

The arrests mark a significant victory for local authorities in their pursuit to dismantle drug operations and reduce the availability of illegal narcotics on the streets.
