FAIRHAVEN — Lieutenant Kevin Kobza reports that the Fairhaven Police Department arrested an alleged drug dealer and seized two guns and a variety of narcotics during the execution of a search warrant on Monday, which came as the result of a Fairhaven Police investigation into drug activity in the community.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., on Monday, May 7, Fairhaven Police detectives executed a search warrant at an apartment at 415 Main St., with the assistance of the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office South Coast Anti-Crime Task Force.

The search warrant was applied for as part of an investigation into a drug dealing operation that was based out of the residence.

During the subsequent search of the apartment detectives seized:

  • Over 350 Grams of Cocaine
