Springfield Police Break Up Washburn Street Drug Ring
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – Six people are facing charges after Springfield Police conduct a raid on a home Tuesday night.
According to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney, around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, members of the department’s narcotics division executed a search warrant at a home on Washburn Street following an investigation into a drug distribution ring, involving Heroin, Cocaine, and Oxycontin.
The ring, Delaney adds, allegedly involved a mother, her son, and her daughter, who is eight months pregnant.
As officers began to approach the home, Delaney says that “raid lookouts were screaming and whistling, warning the dealers inside that they were about to be hit.”
Once inside, police arrested 46-year-old Tracy Anderson, 25-year-old Christopher Anderson, 44- year-old Angela Perez, 24-year-old Crystal Foley, and 50-year-old Richard McCarthy.
The pregnant daughter, 23-year-old Kaytlin Anderson, was not arrested because of her pregnancy, and instead will be summonsed to court.
Delaney adds that investigators seized 111 bags of Herion, packaged Crack Cocaine and powder cocaine for sale, Oxycontin pills, packaging material, and cash.
A .22 caliber handgun that was reported stolen in a house break-in in Cleveland, Ohio was alos located.
All five are facing several charges including possession of Heroin, Cocaine, and Oxycontin with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm without a license, and possession of ammunition.
Those arrested are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Springfield District Court.
