During the months of May and June, members of the Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, with the assistance of the W.E.B. Major Crimes and Drug Task Force, conducted an investigation into narcotics distribution allegedly occurring in Plymouth County.
As a result of the investigation, detectives determined that TEIXEIRA was allegedly selling amounts of fentanyl and crack cocaine throughout the towns of Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, Brockton and several others, utilizing a runner system.
As a result of the investigation, the State Police assigned to the Plymouth County DA’s office Narcotics Unit sought and obtained a search warrant for an apartment on High Street in Bridgewater (TEIXEIRA’s residence). The warrant was executed on Sunday, June 13.
TEIXEIRA was located in a camper in the rear of the property. State Police found approximately one kilogram of fentanyl inside the camper and a 9mm Glock firearm with a high-capacity magazine. State Police also seized an additional 523 grams of fentanyl, 249 grams of Percocet, 125 grams of cocaine and $142,193 in cash.
As a result, TEIXEIRA was placed under arrest and arraigned in Brockton District Court Monday.
During the investigation, ANDRADE-FONSECA was also located inside the camper and was identified as an alleged runner for TEIXEIRA. He will be arraigned in Brockton District Court at a later date.
“These arrests were the result of several weeks of investigation on behalf of multiple local and state agencies, and we are fortunate to have been able to take large quantities of drugs off the streets without incident,” East Bridgewater Police Chief Paul O’Brien said.
The investigation is ongoing.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
