1 min read

NORWOOD — Three men were arrested for drug trafficking on Thursday after Norwood Police detectives and members of the NORPAC Task Force conducted an investigation leading to their capture.

The arrest on Nahatan Street occurred when detectives stopped the vehicle carrying the suspects.

Upon searching the individuals and their vehicle, law enforcement officials found trafficking weight fentanyl, Oxycodone tablets, and $2,800 in cash.

The men now face charges for trafficking, distribution, and conspiracy.

This week’s defendants are Victor Myers Monteiro, 24, of 2 Tyashk St., Taunton; Denzel Marquise Martins, 23, of 17 Kingman Ave., Brockton; and Tauheed Jomar Mapp-Harris, 24, of 45 Hillberg Ave., Brockton.

In court proceedings, Martins was released on $10,000 bail.

Mapp-Harris was detained on a probation violation, while Monteiro’s bail was set at $10,000.

However, he was ordered held for 90 days due to a pending trafficking case in Superior Court.

The arrests follow a similar incident last week resulting in another individual’s capture for trafficking fentanyl and cocaine.

The Norwood Police Department has issued a stern warning to those involved in drug trafficking: stay out of Norwood.
