AUBURN — Police in Auburn arrested three individuals on April 5 after executing a search warrant at a local apartment, uncovering a significant cache of drugs, firearms, and cash linked to drug trafficking.

At around 5:30 p.m., the Auburn Police Department’s Proactive Community Enforcement Unit, along with the Criminal Investigations Division and the Patrol Division, raided the residence at 102 South Main Street.

The operation was part of an extensive investigation into drug trafficking within the area.

During the search, officers discovered approximately 198 grams of crack cocaine, 91 grams of powder cocaine, 8.6 grams of fentanyl, 2 grams of MDMA, 2 grams of ketamine, 518 MDMA pills, 99 Xanax pills, two firearms, ammunition, and roughly $6,888 in cash believed to be proceeds from drug sales.

Arrested at the scene were Sabian Walker, 36, of Auburn; Caprice McAndrew, 33, of Hyde Park, Massachusetts; and Syrus Hampton, 33, of Mattapan, Massachusetts.

Walker faces multiple charges, including aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon.

Hampton, who was denied bail due to an extensive criminal record and current federal probation status, faces similar charges.

McAndrew was also charged with aggravated trafficking, with additional charges anticipated due to the large quantity of MDMA pills found.

Bail was set at $25,000 cash for both Walker and McAndrew.

Authorities have highlighted the bust as a significant disruption to local drug trafficking operations.
