NORTH ADAMS — In a targeted operation on April 17, members of the North Adams Police Department Detective Unit and Patrol Division stopped a vehicle linked to an ongoing narcotics investigation, leading to the arrest of both occupants and the seizure of significant amounts of illegal drugs.

Officer Cogswell, along with K9 Rocky, conducted a search of the vehicle after Rocky indicated the presence of narcotics.

The search yielded quantities of fentanyl, crack cocaine, and Xanax.

Following the vehicle search, a collaborative effort between North Adams Police and the Williamstown Police Department resulted in the execution of a search warrant at a Williamstown residence associated with the investigation.

Investigators at the residence confiscated approximately 76 grams of fentanyl, equivalent to 3,800 bags, 41 grams of crack cocaine, 182 grams of Xanax, four tablets of Oxycodone, and $4,597 in cash.

Digital scales and packaging materials were also found, suggesting intent to distribute.

The suspects, whose names have not been released pending arraignment, face multiple charges including trafficking fentanyl and cocaine, possession with intent to distribute Xanax, possession of Oxycodone, and conspiracy.

A cash bail of $7,500 has been set for each suspect.

They are scheduled for arraignment in Northern Berkshire District Court.
