EVERETT — After a lengthy investigation spearheaded by Detective John Fitzpatrick of the Everett Police Department, law enforcement officers from Everett, Saugus, Chelsea, and Melrose cracked down on suspected drug traffickers in the Greater Boston area Tuesday evening.

The joint operation resulted in the arrest of two individuals during a coordinated search of their person and vehicle, which was conducted after obtaining the necessary legal warrants.

The suspects, who have been under surveillance for months, are believed to be involved in the distribution of illegal drugs around Boston’s North Shore.

Authorities reported that they seized numerous packages containing approximately 30 grams of suspected fentanyl and roughly 10 grams of alleged cocaine during the bust.

The operation underscores the ongoing commitment by local police forces to dismantle the drug trade that plagues the community.

The individuals apprehended in Saugus are facing serious charges, including trafficking fentanyl in quantities of 18 grams or more and possession with the intent to distribute a Class B substance, cocaine.

As part of their appeal to the public, the police have urged anyone with information related to illegal drug sales to come forward.
